Web Manuals strengthens its Board of Directors with new expertise

Being the leading company in digital transformation for aviation while growing at a fast pace, poses many challenges and opportunities.

Our Board of Directors have guided us on a successful path to provide the best tools and support to air operators around the globe.

From the beginning, a group of experts in the fields of technology and aviation was chosen to set the vision that guides our daily actions. During the 10 years of this adventure, we have been fortunate to work with experienced strategic advisors when building the Web Manuals success story, most notably Sam Aston who has led the work of the Board of Directors as its chairman, since 2016. Sam has been a great friend and supporter of Web Manuals since the beginning and has for the last six years helped us find the path for fast growth from a team of nine to well over 50 employees. We are very grateful to Sam for his great leadership and guidance as he transitions out of the Board of Directors.

Having transitioned from a quirky startup to a scale-up in hyper-growth mode, we see different challenges on the horizon. As such, we are adding new knowledge and experience to the Board of Directors:

Katja Dömer joins as a new member of the Board of Directors

Katja is currently the Chief Marketing Officer at inriver and has a long track record of leading marketing teams at fast-growing Swedish, German, and international SaaS/Tech companies. We’re very excited to have Katja on board to help lay the best path for our continued marketing success as we grow.

Charlotta Falvin joins as a co-opted member of the Board of Directors

Charlotta is a professional board director at a number of fast-growing Swedish tech companies, several of them listed on Nasdaq. Her background includes the roles of CEO at high-profiled TAT/The Astonishing Tribe and COO at Axis Communications. We are very fortunate to have Charlotta join us with her wisdom and experience from leading fast-growing product companies in the Skåne tech space.

Jimmy Bäckström takes over as new Chairman of the Board

Jimmy joined the Board of Directors in 2016, having worked with us for about a year to design the High-Velocity Growth process and organization that is still driving our growth today. When he joined the Board, Jimmy was VP Sales at inriver, another fast-growing B2B SaaS company in Malmö. Since then, Jimmy has had the roles of Chief Revenue Officer at inriver as well as CRO and CEO of Apptus, along with other board and advisory positions at other SaaS companies.

In addition, Johan Eriksson (currently CFO AdFenix), Richard Sandström (Web Manuals’ CTO), and Martin Lidgard (Web Manuals’ CEO) remain as members of the Board.
