“We have ambitious plans for the future, especially concerning our SERTICA product, which has achieved a strong position among leading shipping companies worldwide. SERTICA also addresses various companies in manufacturing, pharmaceutical, utility, amusement parks, breweries and other industrial companies. Therefore, we have decided on the Board of Directors to exploit the potential further by strengthening the management by appointing a person with international experience and solid knowledge of our products and markets,” says Troels Severinsen, Managing Director of Logimatic Holding.
New in the position as CEO is Lars Francke Riisberg (53), who for a period of years has been part of the Board of Directors in Logimatic Solutions. For 25 years, he has been involved in the development, sale and implementation of software solutions for the maritime sector. In addition, Lars has an MBA in Corporate Entrepreneurship. Since the beginning of 1989, Lars has assisted in the development of the software we know today as SERTICA. So, it is natural for him to continue the task – now with another focus and an ambitious growth strategy for the global spread of SERTICA.
The former CEO, Michael Paarup, will continue as Vice Director/COO and with Lars on board, Michael will focus on the company’s current customers, internal processes, innovation and further development of the Renomatic and FotoDok products.
Michael Paarup looks forward to the co-operation with Lars Francke Riisberg and states, “I have known Lars for many years, and I know we have a mutual respect for each other’s strengths. During these years, a lot of exciting things are happening in the company, and I am certain that Lars will help Logimatic reach further on the world map. I see the appointment of Lars a natural strengthening of the management, ensuring that we continue to focus on our current customers and business while at the same time, focusing on SERTICA abroad. I am sure that a greater focus on international growth strategy is a task that Lars will succeed in, as he has a profound understanding of our business.”
Lars Francke Riisberg looks forward to the new challenges and is pleased to be back with Logimatic. He states, “I know the company incredibly well and I am sure we have the right team to reach our ambitious plans for the future. We will continue to develop even better software solutions in co-operation with and to our customers, both in Denmark as well as globally.”
