Achim Weick, CEO of EQS Group AG stated: "We are very pleased to unite the two leading providers for Digital Investor Relations in Switzerland under one umbrella. We're especially pleased that Tensid's two founders will remain with EQS Group. As a consequence, we will be able to swiftly realize synergies and take on growth opportunities as the new Swiss market leader.

Tensid AG was founded by Carolyn Baechler-Schenk and Konrad Baechler in 2000. Headquartered in Baar, the company currently has 12 employees. The founders will actively contribute to the further development of the Swiss market and the international expansion of EQS Group AG. While Konrad Baechler, a system architect, takes on the further development of marCo.ch and COCKPIT, consequently enhancing customer value, Carolyn Baechler-Schenk will lead the Swiss team and operations as the CEO.
