Especially for the European customers it wasn’t a good news that Marc Daubach is leaving the company at the end of the year after 17 years working for Ex Libris. For many of us Marc was the “Ex Libris face” from the very beginning.
In discussions about our needs we did very much appreciate his deep knowledge of the systems the company is developing and at the same time his opened-minded attitude towards the needs of the users represented by the user groups on national and international level. In his position as Vice president for Europe he also made sure that the interests of the European customers were well heard in the company’s headquarters.
Marc Daubach stays as a consulter for Ex Libris throughout 2013 to smoothen the transition to his successor Ex Libris is currently selecting. His decision has private reasons and has nothing to do with the change of ownership of Ex Libris or the company development – as Marc puts it – after 17 years it is time to start something new.
With many thanks for the trustful collaboration over the past many years we wish Marc all the best for the future!
