New president for JCF


The Java Card Forum (JCF) has appointed Volker Gerstenberger as the new president of the organisation, as well as head of the Business Committee. He was elected for both posts by the members, to replace the outgoing Bruno Basquin.

Volker is director, product and solution marketing, Enterprise Security / OEM at Giesecke & Devrient in Munich, Germany. He has served as the G&D representative in the JCF Business Committee since 2011. Having worked with Java Card technology since 2000, he brings a thorough understanding of the technology, the current and future market trends, as well as the business acumen to validate future investments into Java Card technology to the JCF leadership. He believes in the principle of cooperation for joint success – so working closely together with the TC Chairman, the JCF members and Oracle, he will drive the advancements of Java Card technology in the years to come.

Speaking following his appointment, Volker restated the values established by his predecessor over the past eight years and pledged to continue: “I am highly motivated to promote and advance Java Card technology in close alignment with all members of the JCF. I strongly believe in the potential of Java Card technology to benefit new fields of deployment.”

Christian Kirchstaetter, head of the Technical Committee commented: “The Java Card Forum welcomes Volker in his new role. We are eager, together with the Business Committee experts and Volker’s guidance, to engage in the next steps of Java Card evolution and promotion.”
