Irisity AB (publ) CEO Marcus Bäcklund has informed the board that he wishes to leave his role as CEO in 2023. Marcus took over as CEO of Irisity in January 2017.


During Marcus' leadership, Irisity has had a strong development and has become a leading international player in AI-based analytics for security.


The board is now starting the recruitment process to find a new CEO. Marcus will remain as CEO until a new CEO is recruited and will actively assist the company during this transition period.


"Marcus, together with his team, laid the foundation for the strategic direction that, together with the important acquisition of Agent VI, has taken Irisity to the current strong international position the company has. A development made possible by Marcus' strong drive and commitment. I and everyone on the board would like to warmly thank Marcus for his valuable contributions to Irisity and for his responsibility to make the transition to a new leader for the company as smooth as possible," says Lennart Svantesson, chairman of the board of Irisity.


At the same time, the board of Irisity, together with Marcus and the management, has laid down a focused strategy towards the three verticals; Education, Rail, and Monitoring Centers to further increase the company's competitiveness and growth. Within these verticals, Irisity continues to develop solutions based on the company's advanced algorithms in combination with technologies such as anonymization and "embedded" camera solutions. The board takes a very positive view of the potential released through this focused strategy, continues Lennart Svantesson. 


"I am proud of what we achieved together during my almost six years with Irisity. We have grown strongly, both organically and through acquisitions, and made inroads into new markets that have given us a clearer and stronger international position. I still see great potential going forward, so for me it is as natural as it is important that there will now be a good transition. I will fully fulfill my commitment until a new CEO is in place and the handover has taken place," says Marcus Bäcklund CEO of Irisity.
