He will attend the transport logistic trade fair in Munich from 4 to 7 June at PTV’s stand in Hall A3.
Jointly with his international team located in Germany, Austria, and Poland, he will continue to advance sales success, as well as services and offers in the field of traffic planning, transport logistics and new mobility in the entire region.

Commenting on his new position at PTV Group, Franke said, “PTV has achieved market leadership. Despite its size, the company has maintained its start-up spirit. This is something special – a way of thinking and acting that inspires me. I think that transport-related issues such as autonomous driving and the development of smart cities present a great opportunity for progress. That’s why I am already looking forward to helping us shape the future together and being part of this fascinating PTV family.”
