orderbird Hires former NCR Vice President Mark Schoen as Co-CEO

orderbird AG, a software solutions provider for the hospitality industry in Europe, said it added Mark Schoen, a veteran in the point-of-sale (POS) industry, to its senior management team. The American executive has extensive leadership experience working at Orderman GmbH, Radiant Systems, Inc. and and NCR Corporation, and brings 25 years of expertise in successful technology implementation and organizational leadership to the table. As Co-CEO his role will be to shape the future of orderbird together with founder and CEO Jakob Schreyer.

Schoen was a Division President at Radiant Systems Inc., leading an international team of more than 300 employees who focused on the development, sale, deployment and support of business technologies for retailers and hospitality operators in Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East for more than 15 years.

He expanded the company capabilities globally and realized continuous growth. Radiant’s clients ranged from small business to big global brands such as KFC, 7-Eleven and Burger King. For Radiant’s Austrian subsidiary Orderman, Schoen took over the management for three years and his team successfully launched the Columbus POS platform and its additional services while growing the organization’s market-leading sales in handheld-ordering devices.

After the acquisition of Radiant Systems by NCR Corporation, Schoen became Vice President of business development for company’s hospitality division working on partner management and acquisition-related activities.

Since 2013, the experienced technology manager has focused his energy as an investor and strategic advisor for a variety of technology startups including orderbird. Starting last month, Schoen is now occupying the company’s newly created position as Co-CEO and is based at orderbird’s headquarters in Berlin.

Schoen's main focus is the operational side of the business including the support of the product management and software development departments. Having clear goals and focusing on consistent, sustainable execution are his top priorities.
