Sorting software and hardware developer and manufacturer Tomra announces the appointment of Felix Flemming to head of digital for Tomra Sorting Solutions. In this role, Flemming will lead Tomra Sorting Solutions’ rapidly developing capabilities in digital technology and building a team of innovators to support this progress.

Flemming joins Tomra as a best-in-class digital innovator, senior manager and engineer. He held several management positions with the Voith group prior to joining Tomra. In his last position as vice president of incubation, he was responsible for developing internet of things solutions and business models for all Voith markets. Flemming holds a doctorate degree from the University of Darmstadt and a master’s from Cornell University.

“Tomra’s pragmatic and forward-thinking approach to technology is what attracted me to the company,” says Flemming. “It’s that kind of method I look forward to applying with my team and process as we rapidly develop and deploy Tomra’s digital offering.”

Another important aspect to Flemming’s role is driving customer value. He is already in the process of collecting customer data and will go one step farther as he leads the deployment of new customer-aligned digital products.

“I am delighted to bring additional high-caliber, tech-savvy senior talent to Torma like Felix Flemming,” says Volker Rehrmann, executive vice president and head of Tomra Sorting Solutions. “Felix is a formidable digital leader with the kind of cutting-edge capability we are continuing to bring to Tomra as a customer benefit.”

Flemming’s work will also be part of Tomra Food’s initiative to form cross-industry working groups to accelerate development of digital standards for the food industry.
