Former vice president of Industrial Sales and Marketing for Volvo Penta in Europe named as CEO
Hannes Norrgren, currently vice president of Industrial Sales and Marketing for Volvo Penta in Europe, has been appointed the new CEO of trim and stabilisation system specialists, Humphree.
In 2016, Volvo Penta became a majority shareholder of Swedish marine technology provider, allowing the engine manufacturer to extend its range of boat dynamics solutions with new trim and stabilization functions, while enabling Humphree to access a greater client base, a synergy that has benefited marine leisure and commercial customers for both companies.
Newly appointed Hannes Norrgren has a global network based on more than 10 years of experience in the marine industry and many years in leading and designing international organizations with excellent results.
He is especially interested in developing and expanding new businesses, markets, customers and technologies. Hannes will work – together with the current management and employees – to continue to improve and evolve Humphree with further growth in mind.
Norrgren will take up the new position as of August 1, 2019. Per Landegren, the present CEO of Humphree, will continue to play a key role in Humphree’s management team as director of Marketing & Sales.
