Chairman of the board, Jens Harsaae, sees the appointment as the perfect match for Group Online: “Jesper Eiby is undoubtedly one of the country’s most skilled and experienced leaders in digitalisation, online marketing and transformation. At the same time, he has extensive experience with the digital marketing of SMEs. That’s why he’s the right person to expand the company’s position as a market leader and to ensure that Group Online is the natural choice for SMEs by being the best on all parameters.”
Jens Harsaae also highlights the new CEO’s personal qualities as a manager: “He has a deep interest for the customers and has proven his ability to develop employees and teams, and make them perform at the absolute top level.”
Jesper Eiby was in no doubt when he received the offer: “Group Online gives me a unique opportunity to work with everything I am most passionate about. SMEs, digitalisation and making good employees, teams and companies even better. I am looking forward to, together with the strong Group Online team and the ambitious owners, moving the company to the next level and making a difference for Denmark’s SMEs.”
Kenneth Stampe leaves the day-to-day management of a company he laid the foundations for back in 2003. He has been involved in planning the CEO change, which he is pleased with: “I will definitely miss the customer contact and all the good, talented colleagues at Group Online. But first and foremost, I am happy and proud. Because I have no doubt that Jesper, as I know from his time with Google, will be a great benefit for both Group Online’s employees and our thousands of customers. And I’m proud of the company I’ve helped build from scratch and now leave to Jesper.”
Chairman of the board, Jens Harsaae, thanks Kenneth Stampe for his efforts and cooperation: “It’s impressive what Kenneth has created as an entrepreneur and business owner. And on behalf of both the Board of Directors and CataCap, I would like to thank Kenneth for his great and valuable contribution as CEO, and the good cooperation we have had.”
Kenneth Stampe continues as a significant shareholder.
