IFS Ultimo is delighted to announce the appointment of Johan Made as their new Chief Executive, effective from 1 January 2024.

Johan is the successor to the outgoing Chief Executive, Willem-Jan Scholten, who has decided to step down after successfully leading IFS Ultimo over the past four years.

Johan has extensive experience in various leadership positions within international software organisations, with his most recent role as the Chief Commercial Officer at IFS and a member of the IFS Executive Leadership Team, since April 2021.

Johan has previously been a Board Member for Simployer Norge and held senior positions at Infor where he was the Executive Vice President for North, West & East Europe. Prior to that, Johan was the Managing Director for SAP Sweden, the CEO for Barium AB and also held senior leadership roles at Oracle, Hyperion Solutions and IBM.

Johan is already well known to IFS Ultimo, as he was closely involved in the acquisition of Ultimo and remained actively involved in defining and formulating the Go-to-Market strategy and establishing IFS Ultimo as a stand-alone business unit.

“I am honoured for the task of running this great company and look forward to the opportunity of building upon IFS Ultimo’s success, strong commitment to customer satisfaction and dedication to a culture of collaboration and inclusion. Together we will continue to develop new innovation, deliver industry leading solutions to our customers and explore new opportunities for growth.”

IFS Ultimo would like to extend our utmost gratitude to Willem-Jan for his strong leadership and contributions to the company’s growth and success over the last four years.

Please join us in welcoming Johan to the IFS Ultimo family!
