Sweden’s Handheld Group gets Fresh Blood


The Handheld Group, a  Swedish manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, known for its forestry products  with two new appointments.

Johan Sätterman is appointed Handheld’s new Product Manager, having  joined Handheld Trainee Program. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the Linnaeus University in southern Sweden and a Master in International Business from Grenoble Business School.

Johan Hed, Handheld’s former product manager, is now Director Product Management and member of Handheld’s management group, a step in Handheld’s increased focus on product development and product management. As Director Product Management, he will be responsible for overseeing the company’s product strategy, product vision, and process of product developments. Johan will work closely with the management team and product managers to maintain and develop the product portfolio and life cycle.

“These two new appointments are proof of our commitment and increased focus on product development,” said Jerker Hellström, CEO Handheld Group. “Our rapid growth and increasing demands from customers means that we must offer the market ever-improved mobile computers, which in turn requires a total commitment to product design, development, support and management. The strengthening of our product management department shall be seen in this light, as fully instrumental to the company’s success.”

Handheld’s line-up of rugged PDAs and mobile computers is specifically developed for use in tough environments in industries such as  geomatics, logistics, forestry, public transportation, construction, mining,  field service, utilities, maintenance, public safety, military, and security.
