Volvo Penta veteran Hannes Norrgren becomes Humphree CEO

Volvo Penta has named Hannes Norrgren as CEO of Humphree. The company said in a statement that Norrgren, currently vice president of sales and marketing for Volvo Penta in Europe, will take the job on August 1, 2019. Per Landegren, current CEO of Humphree, will move to the position of director of marketing and sales.

Volvo Penta acquired a majority stake in Humphree in 2016. Humphree specializes in trim and stabilization systems for boat control.

Volvo Penta said its collaboration with Humphree has let it extend its range of “boat dynamics solutions” with new trim and stabilization functions. It has also allowed Humphree to access a greater client base.

Hannes Norrgren has a global network of contacts based on more than ten years of experience in the marine industry and many years in leading other international organizations. Norrgren plans to develop new businesses, markets, customers and technologies at Humphree.
