HEAD OF SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCT MANAGEMENT
Thorsten Lang joined AUVESY in 2018. He is the Head of Development and a member of the Product Management team. He is also involved in the "AUVESY Platform" project, a project which offers many new creative possibilities, though his main focus continues to be that of the ongoing development of versiondog.
He welcomes the challenges involved in ensuring the ongoing support of previously integrated devices, while at the same time keeping pace with new developments and taking into consideration the diverse array of customer wishes.
Lang enjoys having direct contact with customers from a wide variety of different industries. Receiving customer feedback about new functions, having short decision paths, and facilitating trusting cooperation across all areas are his greatest motivators. The father of two daughters, Thorsten Lang also finds professional balance as a voluntary paramedic for emergency medical services and disaster management at the DRK in Landau.
THE EXPERIENCED SUPPORT CONSULTANT IS AS MUCH AT HOME IN FIRST LEVEL SUPPORT AS HE IS IN SECOND LEVEL SUPPORT
The state-certified technician for automation and mechatronics joined the AUVESY team in 2013. Since then, he has become a much sort after contact point by both customers and colleagues alike due to his extensive knowledge of versiondog, which he has accumulated over the years.
Christian Braun began as a tester in QA before he took over customer services for systems integration. Before he switched to the support team two years ago, he was a member of the department for research, specifically for the development of new device integration.
He enjoys his work as a support consultant, especially when it comes to helping customers find solutions in cases which are especially tricky.
Christian Braun balances the demands of his work with the responsibilities of his family. He enjoys spending time with his wife and their four-year-old daughter on weekend trips in the Palatinate region.

MANAGING THE SOFTWARE TEST AND INFORMATION DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENTS
Tobias Dausch is the Head of Development Services. Together with a team of 15 highly-qualified personnel, he oversees both the Software Test and Information Development departments at AUVESY.
In 2016, the now 37-year-old began his journey as a software tester at AUVESY, where he very quickly took on the role of test coordinator. Since 2018, he has been responsible for Development Services. One of his main tasks is to help coordinate the many multifaceted and interdisciplinary tasks of the department according to agile principles.
Development Services is comprised of both the Software Test and Information Development departments. Both departments work closely with the company's product versiondog. The Software Test department is chiefly tasked with carrying out manual and automatic tests. Whereas the Information Development department is directly involved in the creation and translation of all technical documentation at the company.
Staying dynamic is not only important to Tobias Dausch in a professional sense. In his free time, he is actively engaged in pursuits such as tennis, squash and badminton. He also enjoys long hikes with his dog Betty.
ADMINISTRATION & DATA PROTECTION OFFICER
Kay Tokner joined the administration team at AUVESY at the beginning of 2015. Many customers will no doubt recognise him, at least by name, as he is responsible for order processing, invoicing, dunning, and administration of the CRM/ERP system at AUVESY. In 2017, he was assigned the additional role of data protection officer and was given the responsibility of implementing and ensuring AUVESY's compliance with GDPR regulations. In addition to these responsibilities, he was also recently made the official workplace safety officer at AUVESY.
Kay Tokner's professional background clearly demonstrates the wide range of different skills he possesses. An experienced salesman for IT systems, he also studied sound engineering, and continues to work as a freelance composer for piano and orchestral music.
Kay Tokner draws energy and motivation from moments of tension and relaxation, adventure and mindfulness. So it should come as no surprise that he listens to death metal as well as to classical music, and that his hobbies include reading, meditation, getting out in nature, and martial arts.
