Peter Ulrikkeholm replaces Axel Jepsen, who has been the General Manager since 2017. Since then, the company has expanded and grown from 50 to 200 employees within the last four years. The change of General Manager is a natural step in the development of R&D, which was acquired in 2019 by the American MTS System Corporation.

Peter Ulrikkeholm is already a known face in R&D as he has been working in the company since 2014 and is coming from the role of Vice President, Operations. Before that, Peter Ulrikkeholm worked five years as Business Unit Director for the Test Systems division.

"R&D is a unique company characterized by the many skilled colleagues. The technical and project-oriented competencies, in combination with the drive and dedication, are just extraordinary. The company has grown a lot and come a long way, especially in the last couple of years. My focus will be on realizing the company's potential by setting new goals and dream together with my colleagues – and by delegating responsibility," says Peter Ulrikkeholm.

"Our business will still be based on the same DNA as it was founded on – namely to be solution-oriented, transparent, and flexible towards our customers and colleagues. This, in combination with the continuous development of the best possible team, is our most important means to create the winning concept for our customers."

Peder L. Rasmussen will take over the role as Vice President, Operations. He comes from the role as Project Director at R&D.
