“Briab’s ambition is to be the best in the sector, and to drive development forward. Our new board will play a key role in achieving our vision”, says Fredrik Hiort, CEO and Briab co-founder.

Richard Lee, board chairman

The new chairman, Richard Lee, founder and former CEO of Bluebeam Inc., has two decades of experience in developing and bringing new technologies to market. Most recently it concerned the building of Bluebeam, the leading collaborative platform for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.

Richard believes that real change is only possible when you genuinely challenge the status quo, when people can develop and are convinced that anything is possible.

“Briab has the culture, the values and the vision to change the world of fire safety and risk management. I’m honored to be part of this journey, and to join the board in helping Briab achieve its targets,” says Richard Lee.

Sees new opportunities

Another new board member is Eva Schelin, CEO of IQ Samhällsbyggnad. As head of IQS, she aims to inject innovation and applied technology into the built environment. Her expertise will be a strength in Briab’s expansion towards new and larger risk management solutions for the building industry. She is convinced, for instance, that the local government sector can benefit from Briab’s solutions.

“Briab can contribute expertise in fire safety, crowd dynamics and materials testing, in order to improve processers and quality standards in  municipal community planning in Sweden and Europe.”

Also new to the board is Hendrik Trepp. Hendrik has a background as a management consultant, and was formerly a board member of Capacent, which was listed on the Nasdaq OMX in Stockholm in 2015. Hendrik sees opportunities for strategic growth for Briab.

“Often, rapid organic growth can be complemented with strategic investments that don’t only add new products and services, but also increase capacity and geographic reach.”

Continuing on the board is Johan Norèn, Briab’s head of New Technologies. He is driven by moving risk management and fire safety issues further upstream in the design and construction processes.
