GlobalConnect/IP-Only appoints Henrik Schibler as new Group CFO

 

Northern Europe’s leading digital infrastructure provider, GlobalConnect/IP-Only appoints Henrik Schibler as its new Group Chief Financial Officer (CFO). He is currently the European Chief Operating Officer at ISS and will assume his new position on August 10, 2020.

“I couldn’t be happier welcoming Henrik to our team. He holds many of the crucial qualities I look for in a strategic and business minded CFO. As GlobalConnect/IP-Only continues to grow with customer centric products and services, Henrik’s contributions will play a key role to our success as we continue our expansion across Northern Europe,” says Martin Lippert, Group CEO at GlobalConnect/IP-Only.

 Henrik has held several key positions within ISS before being appointed Group CFO at EVRY ASA, where he spent four years, before taking on his current role as European Chief Operating Officer at ISS.

“I am very excited to join GlobalConnect/IP-Only, particularly during such an exciting time, accelerating on the strategy and integration between GlobalConnect and IP-Only. I very much look forward to joining the Executive Leadership team and contributing to the future success of the business,” says Henrik Schibler.

In early 2020, GlobalConnect merged with IP-Only. The new organization has a unique position in the region, as the only supplier to meet the growing demand for stable and secure end-to-end connectivity services from enterprises, public institutions and private consumers in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany and Finland.

Henrik Schibler holds a Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration from Copenhagen Business School and he resides in Copenhagen with his family. He will be a part of the executive management team and report to the Group CEO Martin Lippert.

Henrik is the successor after Jacob Kjær, who joined the company (Norwegians Broadnet) in 2014. After six years with multiple mergers and strong results, Jacob has decided to resign in order to take on new challenges outside the organization.

”I would like to sincerely thank Jacob for his great efforts and contributions, helping us achieve the success we have had ever since he joined back in 2014. I’m convinced Jacob will have great success in his next professional chapter, and I wish him the best of luck,” says Martin Lippert.
