Urban Bucht Appointed as New CEO of Hypergene
After serving as Chief Sales Officer, Urban Bucht is taking on the role of CEO at Hypergene. He takes over in a phase where the company has just acquired the City of Stockholm as one of several new customers and is heading towards a year of solid growth and profitability. Urban succeeds Peter Andersson.
"Hypergene has developed strongly under Peter Andersson's leadership. For the next phase, we see great potential to accelerate growth further and create new solutions for our customers. Therefore, we have jointly decided with Peter to switch leadership to Urban Bucht as the new CEO. We warmly wish Peter the best of luck in the future and now look forward to an exciting collaboration with Urban," says Thomas Bill, Chairman of the Board of Hypergene and Managing Director of the main owner, Monterro.
Peter Andersson comments: "It has been a fantastic journey, and I strongly believe in the company, the employees, and the difference Hypergene makes for its customers. We have developed together very positively and are well-positioned for continued growth. I wish the new leadership the best of luck and will continue to follow the exciting developments."
Before joining Hypergene, Urban Bucht was the Chief Sales Officer at nShift (formerly Unifaun), responsible for leading and developing sales in all channels. Urban has extensive experience in international sales, partner management, and consulting within software companies. Before nShift, he worked at Microsoft and Snow Software as Global VP of Partner & Alliances, responsible for global partnerships and as Sales Manager for the Nordic region and Eastern Europe.
"When I joined Hypergene as Chief Sales Officer, I was struck by all the competence and drive among the employees. But most clearly, it was the enormous commitment to the customers and making a difference in their efficiency. To take on the role of CEO is a privilege, and I look forward to leading the continued journey towards changing and raising the bar for how organizations work with corporate performance management," says Urban Bucht.
