Jens Maaløe becomes Chairman in GomSpace
GomSpace Group can today announce that the Board of Directors has been reconstituted by the request of the Chairman Jukka Pertola. Jens Maaløe has been appointed to serve as Chair of the reconstituted Board, whereas Jukka Pertola will continue as the Vice Chair. The rest of the Board will continue as today.
Jukka Pertola comments: ”Since I became a professional board member, I have been lucky to be invited to multiple boards of exciting companies. However, in Europe and in Denmark, a growing focus on good corporate governance is casting a critical view on how many board positions one should have. To address the worries, I have decided to reduce the number of my board positions and Chairmanships.
Fortunately, in the last AGM, we were able to recruit an exceptionally strong new board member; Jens Maaløe, and consequently it is now natural to nominate him as the Chair.
Jens has comprehensive C-level management and board experience of technology companies, thereof 16 years as the President & CEO of Terma A/S, one of the leading tech companies in Denmark. He has a strong heritage in developing products and systems for a number of civilian and military applications, incl. air traffic management systems and systems for space and aircraft applications, and thus he is the best choice for ensuring the further development of GomSpace. I will continue in the board supporting Jens as the Vice Chair.”
Jens Maaløe, the new Chairman, comments: "We look forward to building on the strong foundation we have been provided by the Board and its Chairman. I am proud to be leading this newly reconstituted Board comprised of highly seasoned business professionals with deep experience and proven success.”
Since the initial public offering of the company in 2016, when Jukka became Chairman, the company has grown five times in revenue, it has made substantial investments in new nanosatellite technology, and it has created a solid customer base among that the European Space Agency, together with whom the development of even more advanced space technology takes place.
This development over those years have put GomSpace into a leading position to drive the use of nanosatellites in the market for professional satellite solutions.
