The untimely loss of its founder inevitably presents any company with a challenging period of reflection regarding matters strategic and managerial. Goodwille Ltd has been no exception, but when they wrote to their clients and other friends of the company in July 2016 to impart their sad news, they made it clear that there would be no immediate change in the strategic direction of the company.
With regard to the future management of the business, it was always the founder Annika’s wish that her family continue her work by further developing Goodwille Ltd.
Goodwille are therefore pleased to announce that Alexander Goodwille, Annika’s eldest son, who has been providing IT consultancy services to the company for the last two years, will become CEO as of 1st March 2017.
Svend Littauer, who has played a major role in the company over many years, most recently as Annika’s COO, has decided to seek new challenges elsewhere. He has agreed to delay his departure to ensure a smooth transition, while he hands over his day-to-day management responsibilities. Kevin Rutter, who for the last year and a half has been head of Financial Administration, will join the management team as CFO, supporting Alexander in the general management of the company.
Alexander Goodwille, CEO, comments:
“Goodwille has been built on the foundation stone of delivering outstanding service to its clients. I very much look forward to expanding and developing the business, together with Kevin and the rest of the dedicated team at Goodwille. I am very grateful that Svend will be assisting us to ensure a smooth handover of his responsibilities. The company and the family extend their sincere thanks to Svend for his dedicated service to the company over many years.”
