Hasselblad Chairman Dr. Larry Hansen has been appointed new Chief Executive Officer, replacing former CEO Christian Poulsen who has decided to leave to pursue other activities.

Hansen’s new position now combines Chairman and CEO responsibilities. Dr. Hansen was appointed Hasselblad Chairman in March 2009. He has 26 years of experience in top management positions in the German based optical and opto-electronics firm Carl Zeiss.

The last 16 years Dr. Hansen was CEO of the Carl Zeiss Asia Pacific operations based in Japan. In this role Dr. Hansen initiated and developed thriving photographic business co-operations with Japanese corporations such as Sony, Cosina and Kyocera.

Poulsen, on the other hand, will remain as Strategic Technology Adviser to the Hasselblad board.
