Ulrike Rahe is taking over as Furbish’s CEO

Just before Christmas, Ulrike Rahe has taken over the role as Furbish’s CEO. By the end of the year 2021, Ulrike has decided to leave Chalmers University of Technology and dedicate 100% of her time to her business activities. Hence, Holger Wallbaum will continue as Furbish’s Chief Technical Officer, while Ulrike will develop Furbish further as the new CEO. We are very much looking forward to collaborating with you in 2022!
