Edgeware has named Karl Thedéen as its new managing director and CEO.
Effective February 2018, Thedéen will replace Joachim Roos, who has decided to step down to “focus on other strategic initiatives within the company” after almost 14 years at the helm.
Thedéen is currently a board member of Edgeware, and also serves as the SVP of Infinera’s Metro Business Group.
He was previously CEO of Transmode AB, which he led from 2007 until 2015, and held several leading positions for Ericsson in Sweden and in the UK.
“I have during almost 14 years led the company through a tremendous growth and now firmly established the company in a listed environment,” said Roos. “Now the time is right for the company to bring in a new leader who can continue growing the company and expanding the business.
“It has been a fantastic privilege to lead this great company, which today is leading the market place for purpose-built TV CDN systems thanks to its strong culture and all its engaged and professional employees.”
“I am very excited about this opportunity,” said Thedéen. “Edgeware is a fantastic company that operates in a fast-growing application area of tech. I am happy to start at Edgeware which I know quite well after having served on the Board for two years.
“The future is really promising and I really look forward to take on my new role as CEO to lead Edgeware supported by Joachim and the other members of the executive team.”
