Klaus Holse elected new chairman of the Board of Directors at EG

Klaus Holse, former CEO at the listed software company SimCorp, has been elected as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors at EG A/S at an extraordinary general meeting. Klaus Holse succeeds Petri Oksanen from Francisco Partners, who will continue on the Board as Vice Chairman.

Former Chairman of the Board, Petri Oksanen, said:

- We are grateful to have attracted Klaus Holse back to EG's Board of Directors. Klaus has had an impressive career, and most recently been instrumental in creating impressive growth and value creation at Simcorp. The fact that he already has a profound knowledge of EG - and furthermore a great understanding of vertical software solutions - makes him the perfect chairman for EG's continued growth journey.

New Chairman of the Board, Klaus Holse, said:

- I am excited to return as Chairman of EG. Not least, I look forward to working with CEO Mikkel Bardram and his talented management team, who over the past few years have completed a remarkable transformation of the entire business. EG has completed 19 successful company acquisitions over the past two years, thus creating a robust and broad product portfolio. Management has also succeeded in developing a unique business model for vertical software, where EG competitively addresses its core markets across geographies. This, and much more, makes EG uniquely positioned to further increase its market share in a growing market.
