Net Insight, a provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, has announced changes to the company’s management team. Per Lindgren, currently senior vice president business development and chief technology officer (CTO), will take on the position of senior vice-president strategy and business development, while current deputy CTO Martin Karlsson is named as the new CTO.
Lindgren, one of the founders of Net Insight, has been with the company since the beginning of 1997. During the last few years Lindgren’s focus has been in business development in combination with the role of CTO. In parallel, Karlsson, who is already a member of the the executive management team and is currently VP product portfolio and innovation, will take on the role as Net Insight’s new CTO. Karlsson joined Net Insight in 2010 and has a background as a Microprocessor Architect at Sun Microsystems in Silicon Valley.
“With Per assuming the role as SVP strategy and business development at Net Insight, we are in the ideal position to capitalize on the sharp change in the media landscape and it is crucial to define a strategy based on customer intimacy,” says Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. “Martin has for the last two years held the position as deputy CTO and now it is time to take on the role as CTO. In his position as CTO and VP product portfolio he will get the opportunity to drive and translate the direction of technology into solutions and products.”
