Hyve appoints new non-executive chair

Global exhibition organiser Hyve has announced the appointment of Malte Krüger (pictured) as non-executive chair, “to support the execution of its strategic roadmap and growth plans”.

The appointment follows the acquisition of Hyve by Providence Equity Partners and Searchlight Capital Partners last year. 

Krüger brings extensive expertise in nurturing world-class teams and supporting value creation across multiple sectors. Hyve said his experience as a CEO and Board member in digital innovation and disruption would prove invaluable as the group continues its mission “to redefine events for today’s world.”

Krüger will collaborate closely with Hyve’s CEO, Mark Shashoua, to support the leadership team as the company aims to “maximise its potential, including increasing return on time and investment for customers, generating greater returns for investors, and nurturing meaningful careers for its colleagues”. 

“The energy and opportunity surrounding Hyve can be felt straight away. It was clear from my very first conversation with Mark that this is a company with an ambitious vision and this, coupled with its proven track record of growth and innovation, offers exciting potential,” said Krüger.

“We are delighted to welcome Malte and his decades of experience to the Hyve team. I look forward to working with him to drive growth at Hyve and leverage insights from digital industries. With Malte’s support, we can deliver exceptional results for all our stakeholders,” added CEO Mark Shashoua.
