DUBLIN, 12th December 2018 - Openet today announced that it has appointed Jan Frykhammar as its new Chairman.
“Openet is pleased to appoint Jan as Chairman. Since he joined the Board in April 2018, Jan has made a tremendous contribution in helping Openet take advantage of the opportunities that digital transformation and 5G is driving throughout the telecoms business,” said Niall Norton, CEO of Openet.
As a former CFO and interim CEO at Ericsson, Jan’s experience is key to helping Openet transform its business. This includes an ambitious commercial strategy, focused on working closely with service integrators (SI) and other partners, as well as driving additional revenue across its existing customer portfolio.
Jan Frykhammar, Chairman of Openet said, “Openet is in a very strong position to take advantage of the changes in the industry. As a leading independent vendor providing Digital BSS, the products it provides are key in enabling operators to manage, and monetise, the wide range of new digital services. But it’s more than that, as an independent vendor it can act in a much more agile fashion than larger BSS companies. It also has a very strong customer list which sets it apart from newer start-ups that we’re seeing in the space”.
Openet also announced that it has received investment from existing shareholder and Board member, Cipio Partners (www.cipiopartners.com).

We are all for open solutions that deliver value and benefits to our customers. We are against vendor lock-in and the vendor first, second and third approach that has been endemic in telecoms. We work with our customers to deliver innovative solutions that drive value and enable change.
