Helmut Schuller Founder & CEO

Helmut Schuller starts his company SCHULLER&Company GmbH as owner and CEO in July 2018. Since the beginning, he has been responsible for strategy, sales, finance, and HR, as well as orienting the company towards expansion and growth.

With his outstanding team, forward-looking ideas, and concepts, he wants to set standards in the market and create solutions for the individual needs of customers in structural engineering, industrial and plant construction.
 
His many years of experience in industrial and plant engineering, as well as his knowledge of the software industry, enable rapid growth as a consultant and solution provider in the field of engineering and for the creation of digital twins.

Helmut Schuller has 35 years of experience in industrial and plant engineering as well as in the software industry. He began his career as a mechanical engineer at an Austrian plant engineering company.
This was followed in 1987 by a position as consultant and technician at an international American software company with a focus on industry and plant engineering. In 2000, as Head of Technology and Marketing Europe, he moved to ALIAS GmbH in Munich, where he was responsible for sales in the design and automotive sectors.


In 2004, Schuller took over the management of AVEVA GmbH in Germany and developed AVEVA first into the German-speaking and then the international market leader in plant engineering. In 2012 he acquired the German software company bocad on behalf of AVEVA Ltd and from then on was responsible for worldwide sales.​

When Schneider Electric acquired a majority stake in AVEVA in 2017, Helmut Schuller decided to set up his own company.
