STX Next appoints Ronald Binkofski as new CEO
Software development company STX Next has announced the appointment of Ronald Binkofski as its new Chief Executive Officer. Binkofski joins STX Next with almost 30 years of experience working in managerial positions at tech companies across Europe.
The appointment is a key marker in STX Next’s pursuit of stable growth at a difficult time for all businesses, given the economic crisis affecting much of Europe. Binkofski officially replaced outgoing CEO, Maciej Dziergwa, at the beginning of January 2023.
Dziergwa, who founded STX Next in 2005, has moved to an executive position on the company’s Supervisory Board, and will continue to play an integral role in the organisation’s development.
Prior to joining STX Next, Binkofski was General Manager of Microsoft’s Polish division from 2013 to 2018. He was also the President for Central & Eastern Europe at Honeywell, where he also led the Intelligrated distribution centre automation division for EMEA.
Commenting on his appointment, Binkofski said: “I’m delighted to be joining STX Next as its new CEO. It is a company that I have long held in high esteem for its work across Europe and the rest of the world, and its ambitious plans for the future. I look forward to supporting the team fully in the next stages of STX Next’s development.
“It is an exciting time to be joining STX Next, especially given recent developments such as the opening of the company’s new branch in Mexico in June. It has also built a reputation for excellent customer service and an ability to adapt rapidly to changing market conditions. There are huge amounts of potential for further expansion as we go into 2023 and beyond.
“All industries will face challenges in the near future, but STX Next has so far delivered for its customers and employees and will continue to do so in the new year. I look forward to seeing us deepen existing customer relationships and forge new ones, acting as valued partners in their pursuit of business success.”
Outgoing CEO Maciej Dziergwa commented on the appointment of his successor: “Ronald brings with him a wealth of expertise in managing large international businesses, and he has spent many years honing his skills to become an extremely well-rounded leader. He has managed organisations much larger than STX Next, and we hope his experience will see STX Next grow on a similar scale to the companies he has worked with before.
“Ronald’s experience, leadership skills, and knowledge of technology are second to none, and we’re very much looking forward to him getting started. This is a great opportunity to enhance the leadership team’s competence and experience and ensures the long-term future of the business is bright.”
