“With his extensive experience both developing and selling digital products and services, most recently as CEO of Volvo Cars’ mobility platform, Erik is the right person to take over the leadership to drive new growth and consolidate our leadership position," says Anne Broeng, Chairperson of the Sleep Cycle board.
“Sleep Cycle has a strong position in an extensive market with a very important mission to improve global health by getting people around the world to sleep better. I see great potential and opportunities to further develop the organisation and product to create even more value for our shareholders, customers and employees. I am very much looking forward to getting started and—together with the talented team at Sleep Cycle—embark on that journey,” says Erik Jivmark, new CEO of Sleep Cycle.
“On behalf of the board, I also want to take this opportunity to thank Carl Johan for his contributions over the past five years as CEO of Sleep Cycle. Carl Johan has done a great job transitioning the company from being a small start-up to a listed company, including expanding the company’s product offering and achieving the public listing on Nasdaq Stockholm, creating a strong foundation for future growth,” Anne Broeng concludes.
Carl Johan Hederoth will remain in his role as CEO until 30 September 2023 and will continue to be at the disposal of the company during the remaining of his notice period. To secure a seamless handover, the company’s CFO Per Andersson will act as interim CEO from 1 October 2023 until Erik Jivmark takes over on 1 November 2023.
