Stockholm, Sweden – January 18, 2017
Apica, a leading provider of performance-as-a service solutions, has named Carmen Carey as CEO to support its strategy and rapid global expansion. Carey, who brings a wealth of experience in taking companies through high-growth periods, will build on the successes of Founder and CEO Sven Hammar who moves into the Chief Strategy Officer role at the company.
Carey is an experienced technology executive whose career to date encompasses leadership roles as an executive in fast growing global technology companies.

“This is a pivotal time for Apica as performance-as-a-service solutions are now an integral ingredient to ensure the successful delivery of mission critical services and applications. Many businesses today are realizing the need for rapid digital transformation and differentiation, and quality, customer experience and speed-to-market are all critical success factors that Apica’s comprehensive testing and monitoring platform supports.” says Carey. “I am thrilled to be joining Apica at such an exciting time in the market and look forward to working with the team to drive our growth and expansion plans as we look to deliver value to an increasing portfolio of enterprise customers.”
