SuperSonic Imagine said today its CEO Tom Egelund, only appointed as chief in April, will be replaced by supervisory board member Bernard Doorenbos who will operate as interim president and CEO.
Doorenbos has held positions at Philips, Thomson CSF, Signaal USFA and acted as CEO of molds and plastic component company Axxicon Group NV, Neways Electronics International and Vilenzo International. He has been a member on SuperSonic Imagine’s supervisory board since May.
Egelund in April succeeded founder Jacques Souquet, who transitioned to CIO to concentrate on overseeing other aspects of SuperSonic Imagine, the company said.
Before moving to SuperSonic Imagine, Egelund spent 10 years at printing and copying hardware company Oce as exec veep, and held senior exec positions at Royal Philips (NYSE:PHG). SuperSonic Imagine did not comment on the terms or conditions of the personnel transition.
“It is a pleasure to welcome Bernard as president and chief executive officer. His main objectives will be to strengthen the commercial action in the company’s key territories, increase its visibility within the investment community, and continue to develop the company through its pipeline of products and partnerships. Bernard’s expertise in managing technological and industrial companies at this stage of development will be extremely helpful to the team. I am confident in his ability to implement the company’s strategy,” supervisory board chair Hermann Requardt said in prepared remarks.
