Wolfgang Thieme Invited to Participate in Forbes Technology Council

BehrTech co-founder and chief product officer will share insights on communications and the internet of things

Toronto, ON – December 19, 2019

Wolfgang Thieme, co-founder and chief product officer of BehrTechTM, has been welcomed as a member of the Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community for world-class CIOs, CTOs, and technology executives.

Thieme was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of his experience. Those invited to join the Forbes Technology Council have a track record of successfully impacting business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors. Thieme has an outstanding track record of developing advanced technologies and innovation. During his 10 years leading research teams at Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Germany, he spun out several successful companies.

While at Fraunhofer, Thieme was an integral part of the team driving research efforts on using Telegram Splitting in low-power wide area networking (LPWAN) and played a key role in successfully bringing the organization’s MIOTYTM technology to market. Under his product leadership at BehrTech, the company has quickly gained wide acceptance as an enabler of wireless connectivity for the industrial internet of things (IIoT) with its MYTHINGSTM products, which are based on the MIOTY communication technology developed by Fraunhofer and standardized by ETSI.

“The Forbes Technology Council provides me with a global platform to share insights on the disruptive nature of Telegram Splitting technology and its role in enabling robust last mile communication for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications – offshore, underground, and indoors,” said Thieme. “I look forward to collaborating with other members of the Council and lending my voice to some of the hottest topics in the industry today related to IIoT communications.”

“We are honored to welcome Mr. Thieme into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Technology Council. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”

As a member of the Forbes Technology Council, Thieme has access to a variety of exclusive opportunities designed to help him reach peak professional influence. This includes the opportunity to connect and collaborate with other respected local leaders in a private forum. He will also be invited to work with a professional editorial team to share his expert insights in original business articles on Forbes.com, and to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts.

Thieme will also benefit from exclusive access to vetted business service partners, membership-branded marketing collateral, and the high-touch support of the Forbes Councils member concierge team.
