We were sad to hear the news that Hans Jaschinski, Editor-in-Chief at elektronik industrie will be retiring after 35 years at the publication.

With two engineering courses in communications engineering and industrial engineering, Hans started his career at Siemens AG in Munich, before moving to the elektronik industrie publication in 1985.

Hans will be handing over his role to Alfred Vollmer, who has been working alongside Hans for the last few years and will now be responsible for the trade publication, with support from the editorial team.

Mike, Managing Director at Napier commented “Hans Jaschinski was one of the great gentlemen of the electronics industry. His expert knowledge and charming manner allowed him to ask great, and sometimes challenging questions to get to the bottom of a story while remaining one of the best-loved electronics journalists in Europe.”

We wish Hans all the best for the future, and a happy retirement!
