Enea announced this week the appointment of Jan Haglund, the former head of Ericsson’s Product Portfolio and R&D for Digital Services, as the new CEO of the company. Haglund will succeed Anders Lidbeck who becomes chairman of the board.

As the new CEO, Haglund will continue Enea’s growth strategy and further strengthen the company’s position as an independent and innovative supplier of network software. In the past three years, the company has acquired Qosmos, Openwave Mobility, and recently a business unit from Atos.

During his tenure at Ericsson, Häglund led divisions responsible for IP and broadband solutions as well as network analytics and control. He also served as technical director for Ericsson in Japan. He is a well-connected and seasoned executive with experience from strategic product investments, and has been involved in merger and acquisitions, says Enea.
