TrustLink appoints new Members of the Board

TrustLink appoints new Members of the Board TrustLink (UK) Ltd, the holding company of the TrustLink Group, today announced that two representatives of Ericsson (ERICY), the leading communications supplier, have been appointed to its Board of Directors in connection with Ericsson's acquisition of 25 % of the votes and capital of the company. TrustLink is a rapidly growing international developer of wireless Internet applications for corporate usage. TrustLink employs a staff of 70 working out of offices in Stockholm and Moscow. The two new Board Members to represent Ericsson are: Mr. Per Olof Sjöstedt, 47, President of Ericsson Russia Mr. Staffan Pehrson, 31, General Manager, Product Area Mobile Internet Enablers at Ericsson, and Board Member of WAP Forum. Mr. Åke Dovärn, Chairman of Enea Data and OSE Systems, has previously been appointed as Member of the Board of TrustLink. "What is possible in the wireless Internet changes continuously along with the general development of new technology. We see Ericsson as the leader in many of the areas that dictate the parameters and constraints for wireless Internet communication, and are therefore very pleased to receive such competent individuals in our strategic management," Lars Bergström continues. "Our rapidly expanding Russian establishment allows us to overcome the generally common headache of not being able to recruit new competent personnel in line with development needs. Hence, our focus in Russia is on competence and growth. Our alliance with Ericsson, which is clearly the leading wireless communications supplier in Russia, and the involvement of Mr. Per Olof Sjöstedt in our business, will significantly strengthen our Russian development platform, as well as add heavyweight management experience to our international expansion plans." Lars Bergström adds. "Mr. Staffan Pehrson is a leading authority on wireless Internet communication. His general competence, as well as involvement in the development of new open communication standards, adds significantly to the strengths of the TrustLink Board," says Mats Bergström, Managing Director and Member of the Board of TrustLink.
