Karlsruhe, 04 July 2022 – Oliver Bendig is taking over as CEO of leading legal tech software provider STP. The German-based software group wins a very seasoned B2B tech expert as its new CEO. With his extensive experience in the SaaS transformation of international companies, Bendig will take STP’s growth to the next level. The overarching goal is to grow STP into a leading European legal tech platform through continuous innovations.
The STP Group today operates as the leading provider of intelligent software solutions for Digital Transformation of legal practices in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The group offers its clients a fully integrated legal-tech platform that includes workflow automation, ERP software, intelligent data services as well as specialised software-enabled outsourcing services.
In alignment with entering the next growth phase, the Karlsruhe-based legal tech player is now implementing a strategic change in leadership: In addition to further accelerating the SaaS product transformation, Bendig aims to lead STP to become the leading platform in the rapidly growing legal tech market across Europe, through a targeted buy-&-build strategy. As a leading provider of software solutions for legal practice management, STP plans with strategic product extensions such as cloud-based services and Artificial Intelligence to further expand its offering in the areas of B2B, B2C and Enterprise Legal Management, both nationally and internationally.
“I am very excited to work with the STP team and to shape the future of legal tech through clever and innovative software solutions. The digital transformation has only just begun in the legal sector – legal departments and law firms must reinvent themselves due to ever increasing customer demands and rapidly upgrade their software landscape. The global legal tech market has already a volume of 18 billion euros and highly attractive growth rates. We want to take advantage of this to serve our customers even better and strengthen our competitive position across Europe with new innovations, higher workflow automation and the use of AI in cloud-based solutions”, says Bendig.
With more than 20 years of experience in the B2B SaaS sector and in software Scale-Ups, Bendig has successfully implemented numerous commercial and technological SaaS transformations in German and US software companies. Before joining STP, he served as CEO of Matrix42, where he transformed the software company into the European market and tripled its size in terms of number of employees and turnover.
“Oliver Bendig is considered a thought leader in the software industry – with him as CEO, we have gained an experienced tech leader and the ideal partner who will significantly accelerate growth and innovation at STP with his know-how and vision”, Sascha Kaumann, Director at Bregal Unternehmerkapital, majority owner of STP, adds. Oliver Bendig takes over the management at STP from Uwe Richter, who is leaving the firm for personal reasons. “We would like to thank Uwe Richter for the joint and successful path. He has a build a very good foundation for the next growth phase. We wish him all the best for the new tasks that he wants to devote himself to outside the company.”
