Smart home specialist Tado° has appointed Toon Bouten as Chief Executive Officer. He will succeed Christian Deilmann, effective July 10, 2017. Deilmann will focus on product, strategy and business development, as Chief Product Officer and as a member of the Executive Management Board.

Bouten brings more than 30 years of experience as CEO of large consumer electronics organisations, internet companies and start-ups. He previously served as Vice President of Philips Electronics NV, where he led the European Consumer Division. As Vice President of Compaq Computers he started the Compaq Consumer Division in EMEA. More recently Toon served as President and CEO of GN Store Nord and GN Netcom, the Danish headset maker.

Deilmann, co-founder of Tado° comments: “At Tado° we believe in two factors for success: fast growth of connected households and recurring revenues from service offerings. Over the last years I focused all my energy on the first and it worked out very well with year-over-year growth rates of more than 100 per cent. But I always wanted to have more time to drive our new service business models and I will now be able to do exactly this. I feel extremely fortunate to have found someone of Toon’s stature for our management team.”

Kurt Müller, Chairman of the supervisory board of Tado°, added, “Christian has founded a fantastic company and created huge shareholder value. Under his leadership Tado° has continued to set the pace for a new generation of energy companies. We support the founder’s decision to hire Toon Bouten as new CEO and warmly welcome Toon to the team.”
