- 2013-12-02 08:45 UTC
Patrik Olsson has been appointed CEO of Cygate with immediate effect. He succeeds Bengt Lundgren, who will leave Cygate.
“Bengt Lundgren has been remarkable in his entrepreneurial skills and instrumental in developing Cygate into Sweden’s most profitable system integrator. We’re now at a stage where we want to ensure a closer integration between Cygate and TeliaSonera, where Cygate will become a corner stone in TeliaSonera’s offer to the corporate customers in Sweden and Finland. This also means that we need different management capabilities to drive this integration. As a consequence, Bengt Lundgren is leaving his position”, says Sverker Hannervall, Head of TeliaSonera Business Services.
Patrik Olsson, currently Head of Sales for Midmarket, TeliaSonera Business Services, is appointed CEO of Cygate.
“Patrik Olsson has worked at Telia and TeliaSonera in managerial positions for more than 20 years. He has been Head of Business Operations for the Nordic countries and lately he has been Head of Midmarket Sales in Business Services. Patrik is also today part of Cygate’s management team and has a good knowledge about both Cygate and TeliaSonera. Therefore I am confident that he will be a strong business leader of Cygate and continue to nurture the Cygate culture. He is also the right person to manage the transformation, acting as a bridge between the two companies, aiming for further closeness”, says Sverker Hannervall.
