Joakim Ek was recently appointed new managing director (MD) of Cybercom's operations in northern Sweden. Previously, he held a management position in Cybercom and was acting MD for the company since Cybercom bought auSystems from Teleca earlier this year.

"Cybercom's intention was to become one of the leading consultancies in the region," says Patrik Boman, president and CEO of the Cybercom Group. "After the auSystems acquisition, we succeeded. Right now, Cybercom is a heavy market player in the northern part of the country – where we have stable operations, a healthy bottom line, and outstanding employees. We recruited extensively to find a person who could manage and lead these operations forward; in doing so, we found Joakim Ek. I'm convinced that through his leadership, Cybercom Sweden North will evolve in a positive direction."

Ek, age 39, is a systems analyst. Since June 2007 he has been acting MD of Cybercom Sweden North. Before that, he held various sales and management positions in the company, starting in 2002.

"This is a stimulating, challenging assignment," says EK. "I'm proud to have received this appointment. And I'm looking forward to assuming my new role as MD and to further developing operations."

Cybercom Sweden North has offices in Östersund, Sundsvall, and Örnsöldsvik.
