From colleague to boss
Nikolaus "Niki" Kurcz will be NOVA's new Managing Director
Niki Kurcz knows NOVA inside out. After an internship, he initially worked for NOVA on a project basis and then joined the team permanently with a Master's degree in Aeronautical Engineering in his pocket. Until now, he has been responsible for the production area – a role which he will continue. In order not to overload him in his new position as Managing Director, NOVA has created a new parallel position – from now on Florina Eller will support Team NOVA as Project Manager.
This is how Niki Kurcz puts it: "I am very much looking forward to the challenge and it makes me somewhat proud that the other owners have placed this trust in me. We are a strong team and I really enjoy working at NOVA. As Managing Director, however, I don't see myself as the captain who decides all by myself where the journey goes. We will continue to work as a team, because we have colleagues in all areas who are competent and also great people." Niki will continue to focus heavily on production and adds: "Production is the biggest challenge for the entire industry at the moment. The current situation, with limited availability of certain components as well as drastic corona lockdown measures is anything but easy. Manufacturing and product availability are key to a successful 2022."
PS: Sissi thanks customers, dealers, co-owners and employees for five action-packed years at NOVA. She will continue to keep an eye on us - whether we are doing it all right. :)
