As of 1 January 2023, Klaus Aude has taken over the position from Jesper Rantala, who has been CEO of Dynatest since Eltronic Group acquired the company in 2019. Jesper Rantala has led a turnaround in Dynatest and has handed over a strong company to the new CEO. He will continue as Chairman of the Board at Dynatest as he will continue in his additional roles in the Eltronic Group companies.
As CEO of Dynatest, Klaus Aude will play an essential part in driving the company toward further growth. He will continue to be responsible for the sales department and he will also continue to have his key activities in this area.
Klaus Aude joined Dynatest in November 2021 in the role of Vice President & Head of APAC. In October 2022, he was appointed CCO (Chief Commercial Officer). This means that he already knows the Dynatest organization, employees, and clients very well. Before he joined Dynatest, he served as Officer in the Danish Defense, and in recent years, he has held different management roles in business development and sales in international companies.
“I am honored to take on this new role. During my last year as part of Dynatest, I have come to know a unique company with highly qualified, motivated, and helpful employees. We currently have a strong position in the market, and we will continue the path we are already on, improving and strengthening our equipment and software solutions to stay competitive. We will continuously claim and build on our position globally as the number one equipment manufacturer. We want to be known as a company that creates innovative solutions and sets the standards in the industry,” Klaus Aude says.
Jesper Rantala is confident that Klaus Aude is the right profile to lead Dynatest. Jesper Rantala will still be assisting both Klaus Aude and the additional management team, consisting of CTO Jens Vincent Ancker and COO Michael Kjellow-Andersen.
“In the last few years, we have been on a spectacular journey in Dynatest. We have consolidated and strengthened our organization. We are building a new R&D department and a strong partner network to ensure our position as a market leader and to keep moving forward. Now, the organization is mature and ready for me to step out and take on other responsibilities in Eltronic Group. Klaus Aude has experience and knowledge from the global industry, and he is a visionary and commercial leader with a track record of lasting results. Together, the management team will ensure continued sustainable development in Dynatest, focusing on our customers and developing innovative technological solutions,” Jesper Rantala says.
