Per E. Larsson is a technology and exchange senior executive and board member. He currently serves as the chairman of the board at Itiviti, a Stockholm-based software firm established in 2016 to combine two subsidiaries, Orc Group and CameronTec.[1]. He was appointed Orc Group chairman in March 2012 and became Itiviti's chairman upon the creation of the combined entity.

He previously served on Orc's board of directors from 1997-2006.

He also serves as senior advisor and operating chairman of Nordic Capital. He is a senior managing director of Northern Lights and a member of the board of directors of Quant Service. Additionally, he is the chairman of the board of Intrum.

Background[edit]

Before joining Orc, Larsson spent six years as CEO of Borse Dubai, the holding company for the emirate's domestic exchanges and the platform for international expansion which includes investment in the London Stock Exchange and the proposed Nasdaq OMX Group.[2] During his tenure he also served as CEO of the Dubai International Financial Exchange, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Borse Dubai.

He joined Borse Dubai in August 2007, overseeing its investments in the Dubai International Financial Exchange (DIFX) - where he was hired to replace Steffen Schubert as CEO in March 2006 - and the Dubai Financial Market[3].

Before that, he spent 18 years at OM Group and its successor organization, OMX, which was at the forefront of consolidation in the Scandinavian exchange sector, including the 1998 takeover of the Stockholm Stock Exchange. Larsson was president and CEO of OMX from 1996-2003, leading an unsuccessful takeover bid for the London Stock Exchange in 2000, and resigned from the group after its purchase of the HEX Helsinki Stock Exchange.

After graduating from Uppsala University, Larsson joined Föreningsbankernas bank as a money market dealer in 1984 and was recruited the following year by OM's founder, Olof Stenhammar, to the team setting up the fledgling options exchange.

In 1990, Larsson was appointed president of OM Stockholm, the Stockholm-based exchange, and the following year took charge of its exchange and clearing division, which included the London Securities & Derivatives Exchange. In 1995 he was appointed executive vice-president and COO of OM Group. [4]
