Christoph Herzog has taken over the new role of Chief Technical Officer (CTO) at development tool vendor Tasking in Germany.
The CTO role was created to implement and drive the development of strategic technologies following the acquisition of iSystem as well as support for newer technologies including the Rust language and RISC-V processor cores.
Herzog joins from Elektrobit Automotive where he was responsible for technology & trend scouting, business development, and portfolio and product management. His focus was on the topics of static and dynamic operating systems, Classic & Adaptive AUTOSAR, Safety, Security and Connectivity.

The new role as CTO will cover both R&D (Product Development & Product Management) and BDI (Business Development and Innovations) with the integration of iSystem. He is also responsible for the successful implementation of forward-looking trends at Tasking, such as the focus on Rust and RISC-V.
Since February 2021, Tasking has been majority-owned by financial investor FSN Capital.
“Embedded software is one of the crucial success factors for many companies today,” says Christoph Herzog. “Tasking offers exactly the tools developers need to develop software that works safely and reliably, especially since iSystem’s products have been added to the portfolio. I look forward to contributing to Tasking’s continued success.”
“Christoph Herzog brings many years of experience in the industry and a track record of success,” says Gregor Zink, CEO of Tasking. “With him, we will achieve our strategic goals faster and get fit for the future.”
