Professor Olesch, like all other elected top managers, was unable to accept the award personally, thanks to Corona. So instead of a stage, the award ceremony took place in the office or home office. No reason for the awardees to be less proud to receive the award, as Markt & Technik is one of the most renowned trade magazines in the industry and its readers are well-versed experts in the electronics sector.
