Maria Karlström

Hans Hallin will leave his position as CEO of MOPSsys in January, Hans is now retiring after working with MOPS for more than twenty-four years.

 “I am extremely proud of what we have achieved together, especially during the last 13 years under our own auspices. We have taken MOPS to a new level, significantly grown, strengthened both the "we-feeling", the partner relationships and not least our customer trust. Now with the new owners, Constellation Software Inc and a generational change in management, I feel that we have found the right way to take MOPS forward to the next generation of quality and information systems, ”says Hans Hallin.

The new General Manager, Maria Karlström, has during her 5 years at MOPSsys shown a true commitment and drive for MOPS. Maria began her career immediately after her degree, in the spring of 2013, as a civil engineer in energy technology as a trainee via RISE Processum and Åkroken's trainee program. During her trainee period, Maria rotated at four companies in the forest industry in county Västernorrland, of which MOPSsys was one of the companies.

"Maria Karlström's leadership qualities and drive will be a great asset for MOPS", says outgoing CEO Hans Hallin. “MOPSsys challenge lies in continuing to develop and grow both in terms of product and the global market. For 38 years now, MOPS has been a very important part of our customers' efforts to continue to refine the efficiency and quality of manufactured pulp and paper products. With her commitment and her clear and far-sightedness, Maria will see the needs of both our customers and MOPSsys employees for continued growth. ”

"Maria Karlström has demonstrated great leadership quality and shown a strong drive to become an expert in pulp and paper", says Steve Latham President of MAJIQ and Portfolio Manager of Manufacturing Software at Constellation. "MOPSsys is well positioned for a long future with Maria at the helm.  I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Hans Hallin for building a great company and for his service to both MOPSsys and Constellation.”

"I feel honored and very motivated to have been selected to further develop and lead MOPSsys", says Maria Karlström "MOPSsys long-term vision and strategy is well developed together with the new owners. The reception, trust and support Constellation Software Inc has shown me in a number of leading positions within MOPSsys in recent years, makes me feel confident and looking forward to this challenge. ”

Maria Karlström will take up the position as General Manager in January 2021.
