STOCKHOLM, March 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — After many stages of growth and 14 successful years as CEO of EasyPark Group, Johan Birgersson has decided to step down to allow for a leadership transition ahead of the next phase of the business.

Johan Birgersson successfully led EasyPark Group for almost 14 years, which is a particularly long time. Some time ago, Johan told the board that he was ready to step down as CEO when the time was right and a strong succession plan was in place. After a structured process to find a successor, the Board of Directors has appointed Cameron Clayton as the new CEO of EasyPark Group.
– It has been an honor and a fantastic moment in my life at the head of the EasyPark group. Taking us from a Swedish startup to what we are today – a market-leading global technology company. Resigning was not an easy decision, but this role requires long-term planning. I realized my dream, to bring EasyPark from the Nordic countries to more than 20 European countries and last year to the UK and across the Atlantic to the USA. I want to thank everyone who made this team effort possible. I am confident that the team is ready and highly capable to embark on the next chapter of EasyPark’s successful global growth,” said Johan Birgersson, CEO of EasyPark Group.
– Johan’s dedication and track record of operational excellence is impressive. He always led from the front and with his personal behavior and decisions he exemplified what good looks like and how values translate into action. This has enabled EasyPark Group to become a global pioneer in digital parking services. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Johan for all that he has done during his years as CEO, says Niklas SavandrePresident of the council.
Cameron Clayton has a long history in the technology industry and leading global organizations, most recently as CEO of The Weather Company, the world’s largest privately held weather company. He was responsible for building weather.com into one of the top 10 websites in the world, and he also led them to their partnership with Apple and Android, which made the Weather app the 3rd most downloaded app in the world. In addition, he served as General Manager of IBM’s Partner Ecosystem and successfully contributed to IBM’s integration of Red Hat into the creation of Red Hat Marketplace.
– I am honored to have the opportunity to lead EasyPark Group in the future. The company has a great history and I am really impressed with the strong culture and commitment of all employees. With the acquisition of PARK NOW Group, EasyPark is well on its way to helping cities around the world be more livable. I see a very bright future and I look forward to being part of this journey, says Cameron Clayton.
– The acquisition of PARK NOW Group from BMW Group and Daimler Mobility has enabled a great expansion of EasyPark Group’s global footprint. Cameron’s experience in business strategy, product and technology, along with a strong ability to build high-performing teams, will be a great asset to the company, says Niklas Savandre.
Cameron Clayton will assume his role as CEO on April 19, 2022. Johan Birgersson will continue as senior adviser to Cameron and the board.
