Volvo Penta reports that Hannes Norrgren has been appointed the new CEO of Swedish marine technology provider Humphree, which specializes in trim and stabilization systems for boat control.
Volvo Penta became Humphree’s majority shareholder in 2016.
This collaboration has allowed Volvo Penta to extend its range of boat dynamics solutions with new trim and stabilization functions and allowed Humphree to access a larger customer base, and benefited marine leisure and commercial customers for both companies.
Hannes Norrgren has more than ten years of experience in the marine industry and is especially interested in developing and expanding new businesses, markets, customers and technologies.
Norrgren is currently Vice President of Industrial Sales and Marketing for Volvo Penta in Europe. He will take up his new position August 1.
Per Landegren, the present CEO of Humphree, will continue to play a key role in Humphree’s management team as Director of Marketing & Sales.
