Under the new ownership of London-based private equity firm Pollen Street Capital, Assessio has embarked on a path of sustainable and profitable growth, targeting international markets. Today, Erik Langaker takes office as new Chairman of the board, to bring Assessio forward in their international expansion and profitability strategies.


Norwegian-born Erik has a background in developing and commercialising technology businesses, with 30 years of international experience in private equity and entrepreneurial ventures. He has been an active investor and Chair, or Board Director, in 25 companies, and has extensive experience in software and SaaS companies, making him uniquely equipped to guide Assessio through the next phase of development and an ideal fit for leading Assessio’s board.

”Over the past two decades as Chair and investor, I have had the honor of transforming various companies into international leaders. My core strategies include driving relevant product development for market fit, scaling organisations, implementing effective pricing models, and pursuing M&A for geographic and product expansion. Additionally, I have ensured robust corporate governance and supported management in developing comprehensive operational strategies for sustained success. In a competitive environment, we need to secure all talent available. The solutions and services that Assessio bring to the market enable us to deliver on that promise. I find the Assessio mission compelling and extremely relevant, and I’ve come to really appreciate the strong foundation in data-driven research and commitment to high ethical scientific standards,” says Erik Langaker on taking on the position as Assessio’s new Chairman.

"For me, and for Assessio, it has been crucial to appoint a chairman who genuinely believes in our vision of Zero Talent Waste, and sees the value of the contribution we can make in the labor market on a European level."

– Johan Masironi, CEO of Assessio
