Hannes Norrgren has been appointed the new CEO of Humphree and will focus on continuing to improve and evolve the company with further growth in mind.

Mr Norrgren is especially interested in developing and expanding new businesses, markets, customers and technologies at the Swedish marine technology provider, said Volvo Penta, the company’s majority shareholder.

Currently vice president of industrial sales and marketing for Volvo Penta in Europe, Mr Norrgren will take up the new position on 1 August 2019. He has a global network based on more than ten years of experience in the marine industry and many years in leading and designing international organisations with excellent results.

Per Landegren, the present CEO of Humphree, will continue to play a key role in Humphree’s management team as director of marketing & sales.

Volvo Penta became a majority shareholder of Humphree in 2016. Humphree specialises in trim and stabilisation systems for boat control.

The collaboration has enabled Volvo Penta to extend its range of boat dynamics solutions with new trim and stabilisation functions, allowed Humphree to access a greater client base, and benefited marine leisure and commercial customers for both companies.
