Irisity Strengthens Management with Recruitment of Keven Marier as CEO

Irisity AB has announced that after an extensive search for the right candidate, its board of directors has appointed Keven Marier as chief executive officer. Starting date will be as soon as possible, in dialogue between Irisity and his current employer.

"Keven brings 20 years of extensive international security industry experience, insights and relationships in both software go-to-market, technology and partner development", said Lennart Svantesson, Irisity chairman of the board. "Keven has the unique combination of industry insights, strong execution skills and leadership which will help Irisity to scale up to the next level of international growth."

"I am incredibly honored and excited to be joining Irisity as the next CEO, said Keven Marier. ”Irisity is one of the video content analytics pioneers, and is a leading provider of stand-alone video content analytics software. Most importantly, Irisity has great people, patents and potential. I look forward to working together with such a great team and company in scaling up Irisity."

Marier comes to Irisity from Milestone Systems AS, a global leader in video management and intelligent software, where he is the VP of Technology Partners. Over the past nine years at Milestone, Marier has worked in several leadership positions including as the Open Security and Safety Alliance VP representing Milestone.

Before this, Marier was the CEO of Connex International, Inc., which provided manufacturing training, certification, deal enablement and professional services that was acquired by Milestone Systems in 2013.

Marcus Bäcklund will stay on for the handover to Marier after his six years as Irisity CEO. “Again, I would like to thank Marcus for his valuable contributions to Irisity and for successfully managing a smooth transition of the company leadership," Svantesson said.
