STOCKHOLM, 5 July 2018 - Having managed Chinsay as CEO since her inception, Dag Sundén-Cullberg, founder of Chinsay, will from the 1st July 2018 assume the role as Chairman of the Board of Directors. He replaces Björn Engblom who will continue as a board member alongside Carl Palmstierna, Markus Gnirck and Thomas Nilsson. In his new role, Dag will provide guidance on strategy and be available to support the incoming CEO on high-level strategic planning and raising Chinsay’s profile.

As of 1st July 2018, Chinsay’s new CEO is Colin Hayward, previously Director of Product Strategy and Managing Director of Chinsay in Singapore.

The technology landscape of the global trading community is moving at an increasing pace and it is now the right time for a different skillset at the helm of Chinsay.
