Confirmit announced today that Ken Østreng, the company's current chief financial officer, will become president and CEO following Henning Hansen's decision to resign from the role. Østreng will assume his new role at the beginning of April.

"It has been my honor to lead this team for the past 11 years, and I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved during this time. After a decade manning the helm, it is now the right time for me to focus on other priorities, spend more time with my family, and start a new chapter," Hansen said in a statement. "I am delighted that Ken will be taking on the role and, having worked closely with him for over a decade, I know that he has the experience and expansive knowledge of Confirmit to ensure that the company will continue to be a powerful, driving force in the market."

Østreng joined Confirmit as CFO in December 2005 and has 25 years of experience in the IT industry.

"Confirmit is an amazing organization, with world-class talent and industry-leading products," he said in a statement. "This is an exciting time filled with opportunities to innovate and provide our customers with continually evolving solutions and services. I look forward to leading our dedicated team of people over the coming years."
