Listan GmbH Appoints New CEO to Lead the Company
Aaron Licht is appointed the new CEO of Listan GmbH
It began back in 2000 as an online shop for PC components, selling directly to consumers in Germany. In 2001, we decided to introduce our very own brand with internal product development: be quiet!, our main brand, has grown to become the leading manufacturer of premium PC power supplies, cases, and cooling solutions around the world.
In 2013, we acquired the rights to the Xilence brand, a former competitor. With the acquisition of MOUNTAIN in 2022, we branched into a new category to leave our footprint also in the peripheral space.
While our headquarters are located in Germany, we have 5 offices in total around the globe and our teams operate internationally.
The secret of our success is not just the uncompromisingly high quality demand and the use of established as well as the newest technology, but also the urge for constant advancement: We never accept the status quo, our products are never "good enough". Quite the opposite: even the best ones can always be better! All of our components are being developed by our expert teams and continuously held to the highest standards. We are not interested in quick-and-dirty success but in solid and healthy growth. Each and every one of our products is made with passion, designed for the highest reliability and durability.
Since Listan was founded it has since grown from its humble roots into a globally operating company group with its product development teams and more than 130 employees, while always staying true to itself. We're very proud of not only the excellent quality of our products and the resulting very high customer satisfaction but also the very laid-back work atmosphere, offering a flat hierarchy, fast decision-making, and long-term employee retention.

As CFO, Marius Pape combines extensive knowledge in the areas of accounting, controlling, corporate finance, supply chain and M&A.
