“Create the largest provider of vertical software in the Nordics”

This is the goal in the ongoing project run by ABRY on the Nordic market, realized by acquiring vertical software providers with significant market positions. The project was initiated in spring 2018, where Nordhaven corporate finance is ABRY´s partner in scouting candidate companies for the project and building the relations with interesting companies. This has led to several in-depth dialogues where the first acquisition can be in place by early 2019.

The goal is clear and now is the time to engage a CEO for the holding company, who will lead the work;
- grow and develop acquired companies as well as the holding structure
- take the lead in ongoing dialogues with already approached companies
- continue to build the pipeline of prospective candidate companies

For the right candidate this is a fantastic opportunity to be an instrumental part of founding a company group with focus on acquiring specialized software companies and building a large Nordic vertical software group.
The candidate we are looking for has experience in M&A, has own operational management experience from tech-companies, a truly Nordic mindset and has the energy to be the driving force to initiate and develop this venture. Timing of the hire would be immediately and ideally before the end of Q1 2019 at the latest.
