“Now more and more ‘things’ are connected and managed by our platforms, Kim brings a wealth of proven leadership in the Internet of Things (IoT) and specific international commercial entrepreneurship to our company,” said Marc van der Heijden, Chairman of the Board of Non-Executive Directors of Teleena.

”I am excited to join this fast-growing and innovative company and I am looking forward to helping them to accelerate their business”, said Kim Bybjerg. “Teleena’s leading position in enabling Mobile Virtual Networks Operators (MVNO’s) has provided them with an ideal technological and commercial position to successfully extend their customer base to global IoT players”.

“Teleena strongly believes in the potential of IoT related business activities and we are proud we can welcome Kim to our team,” said Timo Smit, executive director of Teleena. “The role we can play in the IoT eco-system is clear to us: integration, mobile traffic management, global connectivity, monetization, billing and provision of flexible platforms. We are driven by a will to co-create and enhance the competitive position of our customers.”

The Internet of Things is expected to become one of the growth areas for IT and Telecom companies and will be rapidly made available to their customers with the help of enablers like Teleena.  Although predictions about the magnitude are not coherent, it is expected that billions of devices will be connected via available networks throughout the world in the coming ten years.
