Starmind Announces CEO Transition

Zürich, Switzerland - August 17, 2020: Starmind, the leader in Artificial Intelligence for employees and skills, today announced that Marc Vontobel is named acting CEO after Oliver Muhr, Starmind’s current CEO, has decided to pursue other opportunities.

Starmind is grateful for Oliver’s leadership in scaling the company globally, doubling headcount in the last two years and building a deep bench of exceptional leaders who will drive Starmind’s vision, strategy and growth plans forward to create a global category leader.

As the co-founder of Starmind, Marc is the mastermind behind Starmind’s product and platform and has been instrumental in Starmind’s success. Marc is also an active member of the Forbes Technology Council and the Global Panel of the MIT Technology Review.

Starmind’s AI, which creates automated, company-specific expertise, skill and know-how profiles has been of particular value to employees during this challenging time of remote work.

“We thank Oliver for his leadership and contributions to Starmind’s success, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors,” Marc Vontobel, Starmind’s acting CEO, commented. “Our current growth trajectory and global customer base show the relevancy and need for Starmind’s solution, especially in these uncertain economic times. We create immediate productivity gains and cost savings for customers by unleashing human intelligence with our AI. Our business cases for company-wide expert identification, customer service ticket reductions and access to tacit knowledge have an immediate bottom-line impact for organizations.”

What is a corporate wiki?

A corporate wiki, also known as an enterprise wiki, is a knowledge management system that provides a central location where your company can collect, capture, and update organizational knowledge.

As an internet user, the chances are high that you’ve used Wikipedia to find and acquire information and knowledge. Corporate wikis are comparable because they use similar technology and processes for people to collaborate and share their knowledge. The main difference is that corporate wikis are confined to the people within your organization.

Wikis have been a favored solution for knowledge management because every employee has the ability to read, edit, and contribute new content and knowledge. Plus, they're relatively easy to use. If employees can create a word doc, they’ll have no issue contributing to a wiki. But, if you’ve already used a corporate wiki before, you’re probably familiar with the challenges they can bring and are ready for a more effective way to manage knowledge.
