Doro, today market leader in mobile phones for seniors, implements organizational changes to establish a leading position as digital care service provider in Europe.

To better meet the different needs of our customers, the business is divided into two focus areas with a clear responsibility between private and public customers. The responsibility includes both product and service offering for each customer area. Three new members will be present in the new leadership team. Jörgen Nilsson will have the new position as VP Consumer Segment, Steve Smith will have the new position as VP Public Care Segment, and Johan Frogner takes the new role as Chief Technology & Information Officer (CTIO).

Thomas Bergdahl, Vice President Product Development, has relating to this structural change, chosen to leave Doro after 17 years for new career opportunities. As previously communicated, Henric Ungh, Vice President Sales, and Malin Lindgärde, Vice President Marketing & Communications, will leave Doro in connection with the implementation of the new structure. The responsibility for sales and marketing will be held by the respective segment.

“The change of our organizational structure and set-up is a logical next step in Doro’s transformation. We create an increased focus on a competitive offer of technology enabled services for our different target groups. At the same time, I would like to thank you the persons who now leave Doro for their contribution in further developing our company and organization. I want to direct a special thank you to Thomas Bergdahl for his invaluable contribution to building what Doro is today and preparing the company for the next phase”, says Robert Puskaric CEO of Doro Group.
