Maven Wireless Sweden AB (publ) announces today that it has hired Erik Nilsson as the new Chief Sales Officer for the group. Erik was previously CEO at OptiMobile. He has extensive experience in leading sales roles in the telecom and DAS industry from, among others, MIC Nordic, JMA Wireless, iBwave, ADC, Andrew (now Commscope) and Ericsson. Furthermore, Erik has broad international experience through overseas postings in, for example, the USA, Brazil and Italy.
Erik starts his employment on the first of September and will be responsible for the group's global sales and market organization, with a focus on continued profitable growth with both existing and new customers and new markets.
The group's current VP of sales Pär Tjernström will reduce his working hours after the turn of the year as a first step towards retirement, but will remain in the group with a senior position in product management.
"Erik is an expert in the field," says Fredrik Ekström, CEO of Maven Wireless. "We are confident that his experience in sales leadership, market and customer knowledge will help us strengthen our position, which combined with our world-leading products for indoor and tunnel coverage, will lead to continued high growth."
