Medius has announced the appointment of Jim Lucier as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Per Åkerberg, who has been the Chief Executive Officer since 2015, will join the Medius Board of Directors.
Lucier brings a wealth of expertise to this role, having served in several senior leadership capacities, most recently as President of SAP Concur. Prior to that, Lucier served as Chief Revenue Officer for North America and Chief Services Officer for SAP Concur.
“It has been a privilege to lead Medius the last seven years. After significant reflection, I concluded that the time is right for someone else to lead Medius on the next phase of its growth journey,” said Åkerberg. “Jim is the right leader for the next stage of growth for Medius given his experience leading global software organizations coupled with his strong understanding of the category. I look forward to seeing the company continue to evolve and grow under his leadership.”
“Customers are under increasing pressures to optimise company spend across all sources and categories as they respond to the demands of an ever-changing digital and global economy,” said Lucier. “Medius addresses these pressing customer challenges, and we have the opportunity to build Medius into the leading global provider of spend management solutions. It’s an exciting opportunity to lead this next phase of growth. I want to personally thank Per for all he’s done to set Medius up for continued global success.”
