HOUSTON, June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cimbria Capital announced today the appointment of Jens Ulrik Hansen as Managing Director. Mr. Hansen is a corporate strategy and leadership expert and joins Cimbria Capital to strengthen the firm's strategic value-add initiatives. Mr. Hansen has a focus on digital transformation and will be working with Cimbria's partner companies at both the strategic and tactical levels to enable them to take advantage of and benefit from the technological disruptions underway throughout global industry.
A recognized advisor to some of the world's leading companies and brands, Mr. Hansen helps businesses recondition and reinvent themselves to capitalize on the digital world through new leadership mindsets, technologies, frameworks, and business models. He is noted for a digital transformation approach that can be efficiently and incrementally implemented to anticipate the future and therefore avoid the risk of unmanaged disruption or becoming irrelevant.
"As a next-generation private equity firm, Cimbria believes that extraordinary focus has to be made on value-add initiatives beyond board level participation," stated Brian V. Iversen, Managing Partner and Founder of Cimbria Capital. "We will therefore continue to strengthen our Acceleration Program in tandem with our investment team. Mr. Hansen will not only improve Cimbria's existing program, but he will also create an entirely new dimension allowing Cimbria to assist its partner companies with the digital transformation required over the coming 5-10 years."
"Since inception, Cimbria has committed to generating proprietary investment opportunities for its investors by finding distinctive ways to build value for companies," said Mr. Hansen. "And I'm excited to join Cimbria and contribute my experience in digital business transformation to amplify the scale, scope, and speed of the firm's exceptional foresight and mission."
Technology and mega-shifts represent huge evolutionary steps for businesses and society that may seem gradual at first but have a very sudden impact as they trigger and transform our future. The 'real transformation,' however, is the ability for leadership teams to translate the technologies and mega-shifts into opportunities and new ways of operating. Adaptive companies ready to reinvent the capabilities of people, processes, and performance will acquire the largest share of 'the economy of the future', and investors positioned to capitalize businesses implementing digital transformation may procure outsized returns on their investments.
