Magnus Friberg leaving to pursue a new opportunity. Baudouin Huon appointed as Interim CEO. The selection process for a permanent successor is underway.

Icomera, the leading provider of integrated connectivity solutions for public transportation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Equans, global leader in the energy and services industry, has named Baudouin Huon as its Interim CEO, following the departure of Magnus Friberg, who leaves to pursue a new opportunity.

Baudouin has deep existing ties to Icomera’s story, having served as a member of Icomera’s board since the company’s acquisition in 2017. He will assume the role of Interim CEO alongside his pre-existing duties at Icomera’s fellow Equans Transport entity, Systrans, where he has been CEO since 2009.

Members of Icomera’s global management team will support Baudouin with the operational leadership and continued implementation of Icomera’s roadmap while the selection process for a permanent successor is underway.

Baudouin Huon, Interim CEO of Icomera: “On behalf of the Icomera Board, I would like to thank Magnus for his accomplishments during his tenure, which began in 2017, and most recently for his contributions as CEO since early 2020. He has navigated the company through the global pandemic, and laid the foundations needed for Icomera to continue delivering as the digital partner to a transport industry facing new challenges and new possibilities.

“As Interim CEO I look forward to working with the management team in the coming months to continue evolving our Internet-enabled portfolio of products and services, supporting our clients’ digital transitions, and contributing to making public transportation a smarter, safer and more attractive option for travel.”

Magnus Friberg: “It has been a pleasure to serve as Icomera’s CEO and I am proud of the accomplishments we have achieved. With this foundation anchored, the company is poised for continued success in the Connected Journey. Having worked closely with Baudouin over the last few years, I know how passionate he is about Icomera’s mission within the transport marketplace, and that his wealth of industry experience will guide the entire team to fulfil our committed goals.”
