Our Team

DI Simon Prüller, CEO

Even as a child, the greatest thing for Simon was to turn his own visions into reality. With a strong inner drive, innovative spirit and his technical knowledge in the field of mechanical engineering, he and Gerald form a perfect team to lead the fortunes of 2nd Cycle.

Ing. Gerald Eichler, CEO

With years of experience in the field of automation technology, an enthusiast in the field of renewable energies from the very beginning and CEO of GetroniX, Gerald knows exactly how things work in practice and has the right solution for every problem.  

DI Michael Prüller

Michael was already able to shine with outstanding achievements during his studies in mechanical engineering (MUL Leoben). Michael brings his professional experience as a project manager in special machine construction and his in-depth knowledge of machine learning, development and design, as well as sensor technology and data analysis to 2nd Cycle.

DI Simon Schauppenlehner

With a smile on his face, there is (almost) no problem in the world that Simon cannot solve with a computer and a few lines of code. Simon brings his degree in electrical engineering and his experience from several professional positions in the field of automation/software to the development of the upcycling system.  

DI Jakob Anger

As an experienced development engineer with many years of experience in various industries in combination with his studies in technical physics, Jakob is driving innovation in the field of testing and measurement technology for solar modules at 2nd Cycle. Jakob is also active in consulting for renewable energies and energy communities.  

DI Michael Altrichter

Business Angel of the Year, investor at 2MIN 2MIO for many years, dozens of investments in start-ups and currently a strong investment focus on renewable energies are just some of the points in Michael's profile.
