Icomera Appoints New CEO Magnus Friberg

Icomera has announced that Magnus Friberg has been appointed as its new CEO, from 28th January 2020, after Karl-Johan Holm stepped down from the role.

Magnus joined Icomera in 2017 as Senior Vice President for the Americas, overseeing a period of rapid growth in the region and expanding Icomera’s services and relationships with new and existing clients in the United States and Canada. His appointment as CEO brings a wealth of transport and technology experience to the leadership position, coupled with deep existing ties to Icomera’s continuing growth story.

Salvatore Sinapi has also been named as Deputy CEO, following two and a half years of working closely with Icomera’s Management team in his previous role as Director of International Transport Operations at ENGIE Ineo, and as a member of the Icomera Board.

Gael Falchier has been appointed as Chairman of the Board of Icomera, responsible for guiding Icomera’s development as part of the new Transport organisation of its parent company, ENGIE Solutions.

The board wishes to thank Karl-Johan for his service, and acknowledge, respect and celebrate his success with Icomera, leading the company to become the global leader in mobile Internet connectivity for public transport. Now we look forward to taking The Connected Journey even further in 2020 and beyond.

In an accelerating cycle of advances in technology driving passenger expectations and passenger demand driving new technology, Icomera will continue to develop solutions that meet the immediate and future needs of the public transport industry.

We wish to enhance our value as a digital partner to our clients by creating a more extensive Internet-enabled product portfolio, delivered as a service for transport operators. We will also further leverage the reach of ENGIE Solutions to operate closer to our clients in territories around the globe.

We are excited by the opportunity to continue working together with all our clients to improve the public transport experience and promote green mobility. Our journey towards the zero-carbon transition, and the smarter, greener future it promises, is progressing at an exciting pace.
