NetBooster, the leading independent European interactive communication agency, today announced the strengthening of its Executive Committee with the appointment of Nils Carlsson, as Group Chief Operating Officer (COO).
Nils Carlsson joins Netbooster from Guava A/S, a Danish based subsidiary of Netbooster which operates in Denmark, Finland, Norway, the UK and Sweden of which he was CEO.
In the second half of 2010, NetBooster initiated a process of operational integration of Guava A/S, in order to benefit from synergies between the two groups and to optimise its organisation to the benefit of its customers and shareholders. Nils Carlsson’s appointment as Chief Operating Officer is consistent with this strategy. This approach will enable the Group to strengthen its organisation and operational synergies, as well as to expand its offering to the benefit of its international customers.
Nils Carlsson brings with him 16 years of experience in top management positions in the Telecom, Internet and Multimedia industries to NetBooster. Prior to joining Guava A/S, Nils’ duties included the positions of Vice-President – Marketing & Sales for Telenor AB and Manager for the Vodafone Group.
Nils Carlsson, NetBooster’s new COO stated: “I am very pleased with this opportunity to complete the operational merger of NetBooster and Guava, which is aimed at enhancing synergies and further improving the quality of service provided to our customers, as well as our profitability.”
Pascal Chevalier, NetBooster’s CEO, added: “I found in Nils a person who is very committed to the development of our company, a great professional who meets his targets and a leader respected by his teams. He has all the necessary qualities to oversee NetBooster Group’s operations and accelerate our virtuous international expansion, while at the same time further improving our operating excellence and profitability.”
