Sivers Semiconductors AB of Kista, Sweden (which supplies chips and integrated modules) has recruited Håkan Rippe as chief financial officer (CFO) from 20 September.
Rippe’s career spans 27 years in both private-equity-owned and listed technology companies. He has been part of several growth journeys and handled a significant number of acquisitions and capital market transactions. Rippe has previously held the role of CFO at Enea and Clavister as well as senior positions at IBM and Telelogic, among others.
“After moving to Nasdaq Stockholm’s main list, we are now entering the next phase of our growth journey,” says president & CEO Anders Storm. “Håkans Rippe’s many years of experience as CFO from companies on the main list and from the stock market will be a strong addition to the company,” he believes. “Håkan has run many M&A transactions and been responsible for business development in the US for many years.”
Rippe succeeds Robert Ejermark, who has been CFO for over three years. “Robert has been instrumental in the company’s move to Nasdaq’s main list by creating a robust and sustainable long-term structure in the company,” comments Storm.
Rippe has recently, at market price, acquired 375,000 shares in Sivers Semiconductors.
