Cecilia Wachtmeister takes over as new CEO of IAR
Uppsala, Sweden – July 10, 2024 – Cecilia Wachtmeister, who was appointed as the new CEO of I.A.R. Systems Group AB at the end of March, will officially assume the role on August 16. When Cecilia was recruited, it was communicated that she would take office by October 1 at the latest, with the hope of an earlier start date. Cecilia has been able to leave her previous position earlier than planned and will therefore assume the CEO role at IAR on August 16.

"We are very pleased to welcome Cecilia to IAR. The board is highly satisfied with the recruitment and the swift appointment, which enables us to advance our growth strategy without delay," says Nicolas Hassbjer, Chairman of the Board of IAR.

"I am excited to finally assume the role of CEO and continue developing this fine deep-tech software company that is growing profitably," says Cecilia Wachtmeister, incoming CEO of IAR.

Richard Lind will simultaneously leave his position but will be available to the company during the fall. Upon assuming her new role, Cecilia Wachtmeister will step down from her position as a board member of IAR.
