MONTREAL — XBIZ has received confirmation that Fabian Thylmann has sold his stake in Manwin to the company's "top management team."
In a letter to employees, Thylmann said it was "one of the hardest in our lives for both my wife and myself."
The letter reads:
It has been a long time since most of us have talked, but today I am reaching out for an announcement that I am sure has been rumoured around the office in the last few months.
It is with a sad heart that I have to announce that I have decided to sell Manwin to Manwin's top management team. Please believe me that this decision has been one of the hardest in our lives for both my wife and myself. We have grown fond of all of you and are happy to be able to call many of you our close and dear friends.
But exactly for this reason we believe this move is the best for everyone. Both myself and Manwin are at a stage where I can no longer add significant value to the best of my ability. I hope I have taught all of you and management the right values to be able to continue the company in the best possible way and I am looking forward to following its development.
Who knows, maybe some of our paths will cross again in the years to come. If anyone wants to chat, I can be reached via my old Manwin eMail address for the foreseeable future.
I hope you had a good time with my family and myself around and can keep fond memories of our fun times together. Keep up the great work everyone and hopefully see you soon!
