Mr. Norbert Cahn von Seelen was a very private man and few personal details are currently available. He was born on May 18th, 1954 and died on October 28th, 2016. His wife survives him. I don’t know if there were any children born of this marriage.

Mr. Cahn von Seelen’s Lectron System history is a bit easier to account for. When Mr. Manfred Walter gifted the Lectron System assets to the RWO in 2001, Mr. Cahn von Seelen developed a project plan to take over the production and selling of the Lectron System product line from Mr. Walter’s Lectron System, GmbH.

In concert with Mr. Gerd Kopperschmidt and Mr. Wolfgang Schrank, the Lectron System product line was completely redesigned, overhauled, and financed through the RWO and many new models were developed as well.

Mr. Steffen Pohl served as the business manager during this time up until 2015 when he assumed Mr. Schrank’s management role at RWO.  Mr. Andreas Schmidt took over the Lectron System product duties of Mr. Cahn von Seelen.  Mr. Martin Pohl supported Mr. Schmidt with the day to day running of the Lectron System business.
