Exclusive Networks appointed former Arrow executive Jesper Trolle as its new CEO, taking over from Olivier Breittmayer, who is becoming a non-executive board member.
Trolle was most recently president of the Americas for ECS Arrow Electronics. He had been working at Arrow since 2005, when the company acquired DNS Denmark, a company that had acquired a previous venture he founded, Next DenMark A/S, a few years earlier.
The company said the appointment, which brings an end to Breittmayer’s 17-year tenure as CEO, was part of a planned succession strategy.
“Olivier’s vision of creating the only specialist distributor on a global scale, focused on high-performance cybersecurity infrastructure, was imaginative and disruptive – and that vision has become reality,” Trolle said in a statement. “Exclusive continues to buck market trends, growing at pace organically, expanding geographically and still disrupting.”
