CTEK Appoints New CEO to Strengthen Global Position


LONDON--July 22, 2013: CTEK, a global battery maintenance and care brand, has announced the recent appointment of its new CEO, Jon Lind. He will be based at CTEK's Headquarters in Vikmanshyttan, Sweden for his new role.

Jon brings with him a wealth of senior management experience, previously holding the position of Managing Director of Dellner Couplers, the world leading supplier of complete train connection systems. In this and other roles at Dellner Couplers during the last 20 years, Jon gained extensive understanding of sales and product development, making him a perfect fit to develop CTEK's brand and global position as the creator of the world's smartest battery chargers.

As part of the appointment Jon will also become CEO of CTEK's sister company, Creator. The leading research, design and product development consultancy specialises in collaborating with companies to create next-generation products.

Jon Lind commented: "We are facing an important period in CTEK's development, with a number of positive challenges. CTEK has already enjoyed great success, both domestically and in the export market - our success is based on creativity and technical knowledge that has developed a series of world-class, award winning products. We want to build on this success by further increasing market share, particularly in our emerging markets of China & the US, so we will be focusing heavily on sales & marketing activity.

"We see both China and the US as key areas for development of the short to medium term. We will be bringing our Chinese and US senior managers into our management team to ensure a much more synchronised approach. Asia and the US are both big markets and we see some great opportunities to significantly increase market share."
