We were saddened and shocked to hear that Jan Färjh, chairman of the Electrum Foundation board, unexpectedly passed away last week. Jan was Vice President, Head of Standardization and Industry at Ericsson.

Jan has been chairman for a year and our cooperation had gotten off to a good start. Jan is known for being very important to the development of 3G, 4G, and now also 5G, and was a highly valued colleague and friend. We are naturally keeping Jan and his family in our thoughts, says Johan Ödmark, CEO of the Electrum Foundation.”

Karin Wanngård, Mayor of the City of Stockholm, is vice chairman of the Electrum Foundation, and will now take over as chairman pending the election of a new regular chairman.
