Gemometrics AB complements its energetic and creative team with another leading expert, as Peter Larsson assumes his assignment as new CEO as of May 2018. The founder of the Company, gemmologist and geologist Torbjörn Lindwall, who for more than 20 years has worked with identifying and valuing gems and jewellery for Companies, Authorities and Private clients; entrusts the assignment with a friendly North-Swedish manner, to assume the responsibility of the Technical Development within The Company. “I am extremely happy to hand over the CEO-role and to strengthen the team with the competence and experience that Peter Larsson possesses”, says founder and CTO Torbjörn Lindwall.
”I’m honoured for the trust given to me to take part of this exciting journey we now embark on and to contribute towards a safer marketplace for gemstones!”, says new CEO Peter Larsson. His previous experiences encompass a broad range of industries with focus on growth and international expansion. Lately Peter has worked for Rolling Optics AB, a Swedish high-tech Company within the Product Security field.
The initial idea was developed by Torbjörn Lindwall due to the increasing insecurity in validating gemstones. The financial risk that buyers of gemstones is faced with is significant and affects the whole market behaviour.
“Gemometrics AB is an exciting Company with big dreams, going through an expansion phase on a global market. Our new CEO Peter Larsson is driven, result-oriented and represents an amazing complement to our creative North-Swedish team with his proven experience within international sales, finance and management. We are also very glad to attract and adhere additional resources from Stockholm and to contribute to the influx of competences to Luleå.” Says Chairman of the Board Sabrina Suikki, following a successful recruitment process.
