Today, Dugga’s Board of Directors appoints Peter Wilcke as new CEO. He will join the company in September 2021. Dugga also appoints two other C-Suite stars to their talented team for the roles of Chief Sales Officer (CSO) and Chief Technical Officer (CTO).
With its growth from 2 to 120 countries, Dugga stands in front of a major transformation in the direction of global expansion. A transformation in which the company will need specialist expertise as well as a strong focus on rapid international market penetration. In this decisive phase for the company, Dugga is bringing on board Peter Wilcke as new CEO. Maria Gårdlund who joined Dugga as CEO in mid-February 2020 has chosen to move on.
Wilcke has a long and outstanding career in the world of education, previously holding positions as CEO at Norstedts Publishing Group, Sales Director at Liber Publishing, and most recently as Managing Director at the AcadeMedia owned NTI School which is Sweden’s leading digital school with 45 000 students. Furthermore, Wilcke has been involved in starting AcadeMedia EdTech, for which he received the Leader of Innovation Award 2020.
Chair of the Board, Bengt Jönsson says,” Dugga as a company is growing at a fast pace which demands specialist expertise. I am proud that we today can announce Peter Wilcke as new CEO for Dugga AB. Wilcke clearly comes out as a strong addition to our current highly qualified and strong performing top management team. Wilcke has extensive knowledge of the educational sector in digital transformation with a strong focus on business growth. This will be important for all the opportunities Dugga is facing at the moment. Being a previous Board member, he is well familiar with the company, and I believe that he will be a great cultural match for Dugga. I would like to thank Maria Gårdlund for a job well done and wish her all the best for the future”, concludes Jönsson.
Peter Wilcke on his appointment: “Dugga with its active founders, talented team, and a product that is in high demand globally, is a company with huge potential. The ideal foundations are in place for the upcoming transformation process. The digital assessment transition will lead to changes in the various markets and sectors, but they will be different and come at different speeds. I’m looking forward to driving Dugga’s mission further and to successfully build the company’s revenue and sustainable growth”.
