Denmark-based video distribution technology provider Triax has appointed Peter Lyhne Uhrenholt as its new CEO, replacing Claus Omann.

Triax said that Omann had decided to step down after eight years of service to accept a new role outside the company.

Uhrenholt was previously chief product and solution officer at the company, a post he held for over two years after being promoted from product director.

“Having worked with Triax in many different aspects I am now excited for the opportunity to lead Triax and continue the Journey together with a fantastic team of colleagues and our owner Polaris Private Equity. I am happy having had the pleasure working together with Mr Claus Omann for many years and have the greatest respect of the impressive results he has made. Triax is well positioned in all our markets and has a very strong strategy with firm plans for new developments. We operate in a technological complex market that requires innovative solutions and an organization always close to our customers and partners. Triax has it all and will continue the positive development in the years to come,” said Uhrenholt.

Omann is departing after seeing through the acquisition of Triax by Polaris Private Equity in 2015.

Niels Worning, partner at Polaris Private Equity, said: “It has been a pleasure working with Claus since Polaris acquired the company in 2015. Claus has done a terrific job in repositioning Triax into a leading European high-tech solutions provider for the reception and distribution of video, audio and data signals. With Claus leaving the company for a position outside Triax we are delighted to promote Peter Lyhne Uhrenholt as our new CEO for Triax. Peter has an intensive knowledge and experience within the industry and has the competences to take Triax to the next level.”
