Stockholm, 23 November 2016
Fidesmo strengthens up its board with Erik Hallberg, who has nearly two decades long experience in management positions in the telecom operator Telia Company. Erik has also together with the current owners and key employees invested in Fidesmo’s last funding which totals about three million SEK.
– Fidesmo has a very interesting position with a technology that makes it possible to connect new devices such as cards, watches, bracelets and more, and fill them with digital services. There is much below the surface that will soon be launched and I’m happy to get into the company during such an exciting stage, says Erik Hallberg.
Fidesmo has, among other things, as a World’s first signed a platform provider agreement with the German VDV eTicket Service that handles public transportation tickets for a large part of the German public transport network. During next year, all Fidesmo devices and cards will be able to carry tickets for buses, subways and trains that use VDV eTicket Service. This opens up to travel in the public transport in Germany with your watch, bracelet or Fidesmo card.
During his time at Telia Company, Erik Hallberg has, among other things, developed the first commercial cooperation with Spotify, Telia’s TV over internet solution and investment unit for tech company “X Division”. In addition to his involvement in Fidesmo he has invested in several other tech companies such as Zynapp.
– We are very pleased that Fidesmo’s Board is further enhanced with Erik’s expertise and experience. He complements the current members in a great way, says Mattias Eld, CEO Fidesmo.
