TV technology company Edgeware has named Karl Thedéen as its new Managing Director and CEO. Thedéen will replace Joachim Roos, who has decided to step down next year.
Thedéen is the former CEO of Transmode and is currently a board member of Edgeware. He currently serves as SVP of Infinera´s Metro Business Group, and was previously CEO of Transmode, which he managed from a small company through an IPO in 2011 until it was acquired by Infinera in 2015. Prior to that he held several leading positions for Ericsson.
Roos will remain as CEO of Edgeware through February 2018. He intends to remain on the Edgeware executive management team to ensure a smooth transition.
“I have during almost 14 years led the company through a tremendous growth and now firmly established the company in a listed environment. 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,” said Roos.
“I am very excited about this opportunity. 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,” said Thedéen.
