After eight years as CEO of media intelligence company Infomedia, Thomas Vejlemand has decided to step down at the end of 2023. A recruitment process is now being launched to find his successor. At the same time, the executive board will be expanded to include CEO, current CFO Kate Wichmann and COO Jørgen Momme Iversen, who will be brought in from JP/Politikens Erhvervsmedier.

Thomas Vejlemand emphasizes that the decision to leave has been challenging and elaborates:

“I have enjoyed the journey with Infomedia and our strong team, and I am proud of the position we have achieved together in the Nordic region and internationally in providing media monitoring and insight into media and communication.”

Thomas points out that everything has its time and continues:

“Eight years is a good long haul. I have been very involved in both Infomedia’s and the industry’s development with the completion of several strategic acquisitions, including investments in partnerships, new technologies, and AI. We are in a good place with more data and insight-driven deliveries. Now it’s time for new eyes at Infomedia and for my eyes to experience something new. I focus on delivering a good 2023 result and helping transition to a new CEO.”

Thomas Vejlemand will continue as chairman of the international media monitoring industry organization, FIBEP, until the end of the year.

Infomedia’s Chairman of the Board, Anders Heering, thanks Thomas Vejlemand for his outstanding efforts for Infomedia and emphasizes that he and the rest of the Board have enjoyed working together.

“Thomas has lifted Infomedia from a Danish to a Nordic media monitoring company and strengthened the company’s competitiveness and international market position. He leaves behind a stronger company than he took over,” says Anders Heering, highlighting the acquisition of the subsidiary Opoint in 2018 and Infomedia’s Swedish and Norwegian business in 2019 as essential milestones in Infomedia and Thomas Vejlemand’s shared history.

Along with the announcement of Thomas Vejlemand’s planned departure, the Infomedia Executive Board is expanded. Jørgen Momme Iversen, who comes from a position as CCO at JP/Politikens Erhvervsmedier, will join as COO as of 1 June and will, together with the current CFO Kate Wichmann and Infomedia’s CEO, form the company’s executive management.

“I would have liked to see Thomas continue as CEO of Infomedia, but I respect and understand his decision. At the same time, I am pleased that with the expanded Executive Board with Jørgen Momme Iversen and Kate Wichmann, we both ensure the continuity of Infomedia and strengthen the cooperation between Infomedia’s management and owners,” says Anders Heering.
