Mr. Muhr led the company for close to 20 years, seeing it grow continuously and garner an increasing share of the growing QDA software market.
Today, the program is sold and used around the world, with major organizations and corporate players among its enthusiastic users. The likes of Microsoft, the United Nations, the World Bank, Google, Boeing, and nearly every major university in the world rely on ATLAS.ti for their qualitative data analysis needs.
In 1999 Thomas Muhr brought the management consultant Jörg Hecker into the company. He took care of all business-relevant and strategic issues of the company, first as a consultant, later as COO.
In 2021, Jörg Hecker took over the management of ATLAS.ti as sole CEO.
Thomas Muhr continues to advise the company from then on as founder and shareholder with heart and soul.
