Next One Technology, which supplies business systems and digital project tools to construction and contracting companies, has a new CEO in the form of current CSO Johan Jarskog, who will take up the post on April 3rd. Johan has worked as a sales manager within the company since 2019 and built an international sales organization for Next’s products. Before that, he has a broad background in the IT industry and also experience in a CEO role from the telecoms industry.
“It is with pleasure that I look forward to taking over the CEO role for Next. I see enormous potential in the construction industry where, with our business-critical products and knowledgeable employees, we will be able to continue growing both in our home markets in Sweden and Norway, but also in new markets outside the Nordics,” says Johan Jarskog, CEO-elect at Next.
Johan succeeds Gunilla Åberg in the CEO role, who shall return to her previous board role and will continue to support and follow the company’s growth journey as a board member and co-owner. The company has had strong growth in recent years, and today has operations in four countries with a total of 120 employees, anticipating a continued strong result this year.
“After four fantastic years where we scaled up the company and started an international expansion, I am happy that Johan is taking over the continued journey for Next. He knows both the industry and the organisation well, and will continue to develop the company with a strong business focus,” says Gunilla Åberg, current CEO of Next.
Monterro, the Nordic region’s leading investor in B2B software companies, has been the main owner of Next since 2019. Monterro has extensive experience in growing companies internationally and sees continued very strong potential for Next.
“Johan’s experience in leadership and sales makes him the right person to take over the helm after Gunilla. Today, Next has a strong market position in a rapidly growing industry with the goal of becoming a leading player in Europe,” says Gustav Lagercrantz, CEO of Monterro and chairman of the board of Next.
