Rickard Hammarberg brings a wealth of experience gained over 20 years of working in the security industry
Peter and Rickard will help Vanderbilt in its mission to expand presence in the security industry

Vanderbilt International, a global leader in providing state-of-the-art security systems, has strengthened its senior management team with two key appointments. Peter Mueller has joined the company as its new Chief Information Officer and executive committee member, while Rickard Hammarberg will take on the role of Sales Hub Head for Sweden.

Identifying new areas

Mueller’s impressive career spans over 30 years in business, where he was a management consultant for international blue chip companies including Deloitte, Arthur D Little and IBM. A graduate of the University of Münster, for the last seven years he has acted as Professor in MBA Programmes at the Ho Chi Minh University of Technology, Adjunct Professor at Beijing Normal University, as well as being a visiting Professor at universities throughout India.

Mueller will facilitate a strong alignment with Vanderbilt’s information technology (IT), business and management functions and commenting on his new role, he said, ‘As CIO, I’m looking forward to identifying areas where we can utilise technology to make our overall operation more efficient and cost effective, and improve the service we offer our ever growing customer base. This will ensure that we maximise our competitive potential in what is a highly competitive market, while delivering value and adapting to changing working practices such as remote working.’

Rickard Hammarberg

Also joining Vanderbilt as Sales Hub Head for Sweden, Rickard Hammarberg brings a wealth of experience gained over 20 years of working in the security industry, where he has amassed considerable knowledge about the technology and trends within the CCTV and access control sectors. His previous positions include a variety of national and international roles, including a two-year stint in the UK as Team Leader at Bewator. His most recent position was Regional Sales Manager Nordics at Lenel Systems International and he has also worked for BIAB Larm and YIT Sweden.

As one of Vanderbilt’s key target areas, Hammarberg is tasked with increasing the company’s profile in Sweden and the wider Nordic region, as well as setting the strategic business plan and sales strategy to build the brand and develop long-term relationships with its customers. He said, ‘I’m convinced that Vanderbilt’s ranges of access control, intrusion alarm and video surveillance products offer unrivalled levels of performance, flexibility and user friendliness. This all makes them perfect for the Swedish market and I’m looking forward to playing my part in the company’s growth strategy and taking myself and my team to new levels of success.’

Welcoming Mueller and Hammarberg on board, Joseph Grillo, Vanderbilt’s Managing Director, said, ‘Since acquiring Security Products from Siemens in April 2015, Vanderbilt is reinforcing its position as a global leader in state-of-the-art security systems. Having Peter and Rickard on our senior management team will help us in our mission to expand our presence in the security industry and provide a level of service that is agile, flexible and always meets our customers’ needs.’
