Katja Pahnke leaves Eindhoven Engine

Katja Pahnke will step down from her role as managing director of Eindhoven Engine BV on 1 November, 2022. She will join the board of Prodrive Technologies, a global leader in electronics, software and mechatronic solutions.

As Chief Development Officer (CDO), Katja will lead Prodrive Technologies Innovation Services. In addition to R&D, this includes talent, leadership and organizational development and serves as a great opportunity for her and for the region.

Together with the shareholders of Eindhoven Engine (TU/e, TNO and Fontys) and the Supervisory Board, we will ensure a fitting succession. Until the full management team of Eindhoven Engine is operational again, Maarten Steinbuch will be your contact person.

We are proud of the results achieved so far with Eindhoven Engine and how it has become embedded within the ecosystem. We are especially grateful to Katja for her important contribution to this: she has been a major factor in building up the organization, inspiring our team and engaging all shareholders in an outstanding manner. As Eindhoven Engine, we have an important role to play in our ecosystem, which we do with full responsibility and with the energy and vigor of our motivated team.

We are glad that Katja remains at the heart of our Brainport region. If you personally want to reach out to Katja, you can send her a message at katja.pahnke@prodrive-technologies.com. She will appreciate it!
