Wincor Nixdorf Hiring in 2009: News From Wincor World

Amidst record layoffs, one financial technology company is hiring: Wincor Nixdorf. So, Eckard Heidloff, chief executive of the ATM giant told visitors to the company's ongoing user conference (Jan. 20-22) at its headquarters in Paderborn, Germany.

Having enjoyed 7 percent growth in net sales in 2007, followed by 14 percent in 2008, "our best year ever," Heidloff said, the company believes it can "come close" in 2009 to its sales level in 2007. With the financial crisis "nobody knows what does this mean," Heidloff said, adding, "What I can commit is that we can survive." Not only survive, but thrive, he suggested, by growing its staff. He declined to specify by how many.

A company spokesman Uli Nolte later emphasized to BS&T: "The growth will be in specific areas." These are functional, not geographic, he said, as the company plans to grow worldwide in "professional services—software engineers, project managers and consultants."

Wincor Nixdorf currently has 9,500 employees with, to date, a bigger ATM market share outside the U.S. than inside. To further planned growth in the U.S the company created in mid-2008 a new position of president and chief executive of Wincor Nixdorf in America.
