BeammWave appoints Nordic Semiconductor’s former CTO on its Board

The election committee in BeammWave AB proposes Nordic Semiconductor’s former CTO and EVP Svein-Egil Nielsen and Pelle Wijk, with long experience of growth journeys in several semiconductor companies, as new Board members – to be elected at the annual general meeting on June 14, 2024.

The election committee motivates its proposal with that BeammWave is now entering a commercial phase where global partnerships and deep industry knowledge become even more important. The company has now shown that digital beamforming is possible to build cost-effectively. In the past year, BeammWave has both launched a development platform and sold it to a first customer, Molex LLC, a global player with 45,000 employees and headquarter in the USA.

“We are very pleased to present two strong candidates with extensive international experience from the semiconductor industry, where both have worked at the highest operational level and also in Board positions. Svein-Egil and Pelle will bring experience, industry knowledge and an extensive network of contacts to BeammWave. Sales will now be the company’s focus and with Svein-Egil and Pelle on board it will be of great importance”, comments Fredrik Rosenqvist, chairman of the election committee at BeammWave.

“As the founder of BeammWave, I have seen my and Markus Törmänen’s idea and vision translated into a company that is establishing itself on the world market. We are now bringing in additional important skills in the Board that the company needs at this stage. Svein-Egil Nielsen and Pelle Wijk both have industry know-how that will make a difference for BeammWave”, comments Per-Olof Brandt, co-founder, and CTO at BeammWave.
