"Estamos muy contentos de que Geust sea el nuevo CEO. Conoce a la empresa y su actividad a la perfección. Con la reestructuración del resto del equipo de gestión, Geust ayudará a dirigir la empresa para que esta lleve a cabo su plan estratégico y cumpla con su enorme potencial", ha declarado Tirkkonen, presidente del consejo de administración de Rightware. "Asimismo, queremos agradecer a Tero Sarkkinen los servicios prestados como CEO desde la fundación hasta ahora, un periodo durante el cual la empresa se ha consolidado a sí misma y a sus productos en el mercado, y ha crecido para abarcar tres continentes. Esperamos con muchas ganas que prosiga con el éxito cosechado en su nuevo puesto dentro de la empresa".

Geust ha sido miembro del consejo de administración de Rightware y forma parte de la empresa desde 2010. Además, Geust fue CEO de Havainne Oy. Antes de esto, Geust trabajó durante 15 años para Nokia, donde asumió diferentes puestos, incluido el último, como vicepresidente de los smartphones de la N-Series de Nokia. Con oficina en la sede de la empresa, en Finlandia, su nuevo rol se concentrará en el desarrollo de la ingeniería y de las operaciones de la empresa para llevarlas al siguiente nivel.

"Como fundador de Rightware, para mí ha sido un honor guiar a la sociedad en sus primeros años para que sea una de las más importantes de nuestro sector. Después de haber consolidado las operaciones de la empresa en Finlandia y en China, mi próxima misión consistirá en hacer lo mismo en Estados Unidos. Mientras tanto, nuestra empresa ha crecido hasta un punto en el que necesitamos más directivos sénior en Finlandia. Llevo más de un año tratando de reclutar a Jonas para nuestro equipo, y estoy convencido de que conseguirá llevar a la empresa a su siguiente nivel", ha dicho Tero Sarkkinen, fundador de Rightware. "La experiencia en operaciones de Jonas, su liderazgo ejecutivo y su capacidad para integrar las nuevas tecnologías en mercados internacionales lo convierten en la persona ideal para dirigir las estrategias de crecimiento acelerado de Rightware en el futuro".

Se trata de la primera serie de cambios en la dirección e iniciativas de reestructuración concebidas para consolidar la empresa y su posición para lograr el éxito a largo plazo. Además, Rightware también ha anunciado lo siguiente:

  • Jussi Tammi ha sido nombrado Vicepresidente de finanzas. Antes de unirse a Rightware, Tammi ocupó el cargo de director general financiero en EmblaCom en Finlandia.
  • Jari Selin se ha incorporado a la empresa en calidad de director de desarrollo de producto Kanzi. Antes de incorporarse a Rightware, Selin ocupó el cargo de director sénior de ingeniería en Nokia. Selin supervisará todo el departamento de I+D de Kanzi.

"Estos cambios, hasta la fecha, reúnen a un excepcional grupo de líderes con experiencia que cuentan con amplias capacidades y gran talento y un historial probado a la hora de ofrecer resultados y lograr objetivos", señala Timo Tirkkonen, Presidente del Consejo de administración.

Rightware se encuentra en la actualidad en la segunda generación de su premiada plataforma de desarrollo Kanzi UI.
