“Furthering the IGEL growth and expansion mission, I am pleased to welcome Mads and Eric to our seasoned sales leadership organization,” said Klaus Oestermann, CEO, IGEL. “Each have unique and proven skills that will continue to amplify our market penetration across key regions in Europe and with the high-growth MSP market category. Their proven track records and expansive contacts will be exceptionally valuable as we accelerate adoption of IGEL OS, worldwide.”

“MSPs around the globe are quickly realizing the value of IGEL OS as the most effective way to deliver a preventative security approach across their customers’ end user computing enterprises, protecting endpoints regardless of where employees are working with an inherently secure, tamper-proof operating platform that reduces organizations’ attack surface,” said Skalbo. “I’m eager to be a key contributor to building IGEL’s presence across the MSP community. This is a central part of our strategy to accelerate adoption of IGEL OS in the mid-market.”
