Rightware®, de marktleider op het gebied van software voor gebruikersinterface (UI) ontwerp en implementatie, is verheugd om de aanstelling van de heer Jonas Geust als CEO van het bedrijf met ingang van 1 januari 2013 aan te kondigen.

"Wij zijn erg blij dat de heer Geust de rol van CEO op zich gaat nemen. Hij kent het bedrijf en de activiteiten heel goed. Met de herstructurering van de rest van het managementteam kan de heer Geust het bedrijf op de juiste weg helpen voor het uitvoeren van zijn strategische plan en de enorme belofte van het bedrijf vervullen," aldus Timo Tirkkonen, voorzitter van de Raad van Bestuur van Rightware. "Wij willen ook graag Tero Sarkkinen bedanken voor zijn diensten als CEO vanaf de oprichting tot nu toe gedurende een periode waarin het bedrijf zich gevestigd heeft, zijn producten op de markt heeft gebracht en gegroeid is, waardoor het nu activiteiten heeft op drie continenten. Wij kijken ernaar uit om dit succes in deze nieuwe functie binnen het bedrijf te zien worden voortgezet."

De heer Geust was lid van de Raad van Bestuur van Rightware en is sinds 2010 bij het bedrijf. Bovendien was de heer Geust CEO bij Havainne Oy. Daarvoor was de heer Geust meer dan 15 jaar bij Nokia, waar hij verschillende functies heeft bekleed, waaronder zijn laatste als vicepresident van de Nokia N-serie smartphones. In zijn nieuwe functie zal de heer Geust zich vanuit het hoofdkantoor van het bedrijf in Finland richten op het uitbreiden en het op een hoger niveau brengen van de activiteiten en technische aspecten van het bedrijf.

"Als een van de oprichters van Rightware is het mijn voorrecht geweest om het bedrijf door zijn eerste jaren te begeleiden om een van de leiders op ons gebied te worden. Na het opbouwen van de activiteiten van het bedrijf in Finland en China, is mijn volgende taak om hetzelfde te doen in de Verenigde Staten. Inmiddels is ons bedrijf zodanig gegroeid dat we meer topfunctionarissen in Finland moesten hebben. Ik ben er meer dan een jaar mee bezig geweest om Jonas bij ons team te krijgen en ik ben ervan overtuigd dat hij het bedrijf naar het volgende niveau kan brengen," aldus Tero Sarkkinen, oprichter van Rightware. "De operationele ervaring, het uitvoerende leiderschap en de capaciteiten van Jonas bij het brengen van nieuwe technologieën naar de wereldmarkt maken hem uitermate geschikt om de versnelde groeistrategieën van Rightware voor de toekomst te leiden."

Dit is de eerste van een aantal wijzigingen en herstructureringsinitiatieven die bedoeld zijn om het bedrijf en zijn positie voor succes op de lange termijn te versterken. Verder kondigde Rightware ook aan:

  • Jussi Tammi werd benoemd als vice president, financiële zaken. Voordat hij bij Rightware kwam, was Tammi de CFO bij EmblaCom in Finland.
  • Jari Selin is toegetreden tot het bedrijf als directeur van Kanzi Product Development. Voordat hij bij Rightware kwam, was Selin senior Engineering Manager bij Nokia. Hij zal toezicht houden op alle R&D van Kanzi.

"Deze wijzigingen brengen tot op heden een uitstekende groep doorgewinterde leiders samen met een breed scala aan talenten en vaardigheden en een bewezen geschiedenis voor het leveren van resultaten en het bereiken van doelstellingen," aldus Timo Tirkkonen, voorzitter van de Raad van Bestuur.

Kanzi heeft een belangrijke rol gespeeld in het revolutioneren van het in-dash infotainmentsysteem in de auto-industrie met winnende ontwerpen bij Audi en andere toonaangevende autofabrikanten en Tier-1 leveranciers, evenals verschillende fabrikanten van smartphones en tablets. Het bedrijf is op zoek om zich prominent uit te breiden in nieuwe en opkomende markten, waaronder entertainment, mobiele tablet computers, smart tv's en andere, inbegrepen, verticale markten.

Why do connected features improve the overall experience? And why do...
