Company Hires / Executive News
Intinor, Sweden’s leading developer of products and solutions for high quality video over the internet, has announced that the company’s co-founder and co-owner, Roland Axelsson, is to step down from the board. Axelsson remains as the company’s Product Manager, and will devote his time to Intinor’s product strategy and market growth.
Seeing the huge potential for transporting professional video over the internet, Axelsson founded the company 20 years ago, and has taken the responsibility of leadership from the beginning. His achievement is a company that is seen as a strong leader in the market, based on its unique platform Direkt.
His decision to step down from the board was agreed at this year’s general meeting. At the same time, Peter Renkel was appointed to the board, bringing a broad range of experience in operational management from companies with global sales, like Intinor. The board now comprises Fredrik Jonsson as chair, Annica Wållberg, Björn Weinehall and Peter Renkel as members, with Gustav Karlsson as deputy.
“We want to thank Roland for all he has done in building this remarkable business,” said chairman Fredrik Jonsson. “It is great news that he will still take a leading role within the company and continue to bring his experience, his technological understanding and his market presence to bear.
“We are also happy to welcome Peter Renkel to the board, who brings a fresh perspective as well as deep experience,” Jonsson added.
Roland Axelsson said “For me, it has always been important to find the best solutions, and present them to our customers. That is my passion, and I look forward to being able to concentrate on that even more in the future.”
