Øyvind Isaksen (51) is engaged as new CEO in poLight® AS and the current CEO Christian Dupont will become CMO in charge of Sales & Marketing. The strengthening of the management team is the first step in a process towards a public listing.
Øyvind Isaksen has previously held several CEO positions, most recently in the publicly listed company Q-Free ASA, which he left earlier this year after 7 years as CEO.
“poLight®’s board and investors are of the opinion that the company is well positioned for a future public listing. Having Øyvind Isaksen on board, we have in place a CEO with significant background from technology companies as well as extensive experience in leading a publicly listed company”, says Chairman of the Board Keith Cornell.
Isaksen will take over as CEO with immediate effect.
The largest investors in poLight® are Viking Venture, Alliance Venture, Investinor and Sintef Venture.
