Carl-Magnus Månsson new CEO of Iver

11 November 2019 / Press release

Carl-Magnus Månsson has been appointed as the new President and CEO of Iver. Carl-Magnus has extensive experience of successfully leading large organisations – including both listed and global ones – during periods of strong growth and takes over his new role with immediate effect. Carl-Magnus will also simultaneously resign his seat on the Iver’s Board of Directors.

Iver has reached the point where, after a year of strong growth that was both organic and acquisition-based, it is ready to further raise the bar in terms both of its ambition and its tempo. The ongoing operational development will impose new demands on the role of CEO, and Carl-Magnus’ previous roles and experience are an excellent match for the new CEO requirement profile. 

The Board of Directors of Iver and Åsa Arvidsson have accordingly reached a joint decision to go their separate ways, and Åsa Arvidsson will be stepping down from her position as CEO of Iver with immediate effect. 

Magdalena Persson, Chairman of the Board of Iver: “Carl-Magnus will bring both important experience and strong personal leadership to his new role as CEO, as Iver starts out on the next phase of its growth journey. The change in leadership is designed both to develop the company’s strategy and to accelerate the tempo of its implementation. Iver will continue to grow, both organically and via acquisitions, and to further strengthen its customer offering in our strategic business areas of high-level security, infrastructure, and workplace and application services. I would like, on behalf of the Board, to thank Åsa Arvidsson for her contributions and commitment in 2019, not least in bringing the operations together under the shared Iver brand.”

Carl-Magnus Månsson, President & CEO-elect of Iver: “I am really looking forward to taking up my new role at Iver. I absolutely believe that by continuing to do our utmost, day in, day out, not only to understand every customer’s unique requirements but also to exploit the accelerating opportunities technology has to offer, we will be able to offer even more customers the chance to achieve their full potential. I am also convinced that Iver, with its highly competent workforce, its customer focus, and its high tech services, is only just beginning its journey. If we continue to apply new technologies and enhance our ability, in collaboration with our customers, to define and implement transformative digital changes, we will bring about further improvements in our customers’ efficiency, productivity, and sustainability.”

About Carl-Magnus Månsson
Carl-Magnus Månsson’s most recent position was as CEO of Acando – a position to which he was recruited in 2009. The introduction of a customer-orientated organisation with a strong corporate culture, high levels of employee engagement, and a focus on transformative, technology-enabled change processes, saw Acando develop into a leading Nordic consultancy firm, with high growth rates and good profitability. 

A number of acquisitions – both for geographic expansion purposes and in order to add unique skills – were completed and successfully integrated into Acando during Carl-Magnus’ time with the company. Carl-Magnus was originally recruited by Acando from Ericsson, where he had held the position of CIO since 2005. Previous managerial roles within Ericsson included product and service development, acquisitions of technology companies, and customer-orientated, international roles in the USA, Europe, and Asia.
