Volvo Penta appointed Hannes Norrgren the new CEO of Humphree, a Swedish marine technology provider.
In 2016, Volvo Penta became a majority shareholder of Humphree, which specializes in trim and stabilization systems for boat control.
This collaboration has allowed Volvo Penta to extend its range of boat dynamics solutions with new trim and stabilization functions, allowed Humphree to access a greater client base, and benefited marine leisure and commercial customers for both companies, Volvo Penta said.
Norrgren has a global network based on more than 10 years of experience in the marine industry and many years in leading and designing international organizations with excellent results.
Hannes is currently vice president of Industrial Sales and Marketing for Volvo Penta in Europe. He will take up the new position as of Aug. 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.
