Olivier Dussutour appointed new CEO of Nexus
Nexus, a part of the French IN Groupe, has appointed Olivier Dussutour as CEO. He will move from his current position as Group Innovation Director at IN Groupe to replace former CEO, Magnus Malmström who decided to reach a new professional venture outside the company.
After IN Groupe acquired Nexus last year, the group has laid the foundation to accelerate growth and to be a leading player in identity and secure digital services globally. To achieve this goal, IN Groupe management has appointed Olivier as CEO of Nexus as of March 1st, 2021. Nexus will be a part of the newly created Digital Services Business Unit.
“With Nexus at the core of our expansion strategy in Europe, it is important to have knowledgeable and innovative leadership guiding the company through this transformation,” comments Didier Trutt, President & CEO of IN Groupe. “Olivier has added tremendous value to the IN Groupe team and we look to him to drive Nexus to the next level, building on the great work and momentum gained by the Nexus team under Magnus Malmström’s leadership.”
Olivier joined IN Groupe in 2015 as Head of Development & Integration and led innovation for the past 3 years where he initiated the work on Digital ID. With his cross sectors and functional teams, he designed and developed user-friendly and frictionless solutions around Digital ID, authentication, and services. Olivier has 15 years of experience in the security industry with deep technical knowledge in the identity market from companies such as Entrust and Gemalto.
Nexus will continue developing the Smart ID platform and services for Workforce and IoT. The demand for Nexus solutions has increased vastly over the last years with leading organizations such as Airbus, Banque of France, Danfoss, and others depending on the Smart ID platform.
“I’m excited about the challenge and the opportunity to lead such an extraordinary team,” adds Olivier Dussutour, CEO of Nexus. “Nexus is at the heart of the digital transformation within IN Groupe and our solutions and services are cutting edge for both IoT and Workforce. We will continue to innovate and secure society by enabling trusted identities.”
We are looking forward to this new phase under Olivier’s leadership as Nexus and IN Groupe embark on an ambitious program of growth and innovation within the identity value chain.
