Lumera appoints Jonas Alfredson acting CEO



Lumera’s CEO Mats Lillienberg has elected to retire. During the search for his successor, CFO Jonas Alfredson will step in as acting CEO.

Stockholm, February 16, 2024 – The Board of the insurtech company Lumera has appointed Jonas Alfredson acting CEO. Mats Lillienberg, CEO of Lumera AB since 2018, will leave the company as he is retiring.

During the fall of 2023, Mats Lillienberg informed the Board of his intent to retire. The search process for a new CEO is already underway, but it is unclear when this will be completed. A joint decision has now been made where Mats promptly resigns, and Jonas Alfredson takes over as acting CEO until a permanent successor is in place. Jonas Alfredson will maintain the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO), which he has held since joining Lumera in February 2023.

“The Board and I want to extend our gratitude to Mats for his fine service as Chief Executive, which has been instrumental in enabling Lumera to reach the next level. As an effective team builder and customer-focused operational manager, he has helped reinforce Lumera's position in our key markets in Sweden and Norway. At the same time, Mats has vigorously executed our growth strategy, advancing Lumera’s vision to be the leading SaaS provider for the European Life and Pensions industry,” says Peter Larsson, Chairman of the Board of Lumera.

Mats Lillienberg was appointed CEO in 2018 and has led the company during a period of profitable growth, as Lumera signed large contracts and won strategically important deals. The business has also expanded internationally through acquisitions in Norway, the Netherlands, and Great Britain. Today, Lumera’s market presence extends to five countries with six offices and some 350 employees.

“I have had six fantastic years with Lumera. It has been a privilege to work with the most capable team in our industry and I am proud of how the business has evolved. Among many memorable highlights, I especially recall the collaborative spirit among colleagues, customers and our business partners that helped us adapt through the Covid pandemic,” says Mats Lillienberg.
