Ingar Hanssen Joins Novelda as Director of Strategic Projects

We are pleased to announce that Ingar Hanssen has joined Novelda as Director of Strategic Projects. Following his onboarding, Ingar will be responsible for managing strategic customer projects, but he also hopes to contribute on the core radar technology side with his industrial high-volume experience.

Ingar joined Novelda because of the new exciting technology and the possibility to be part of a fast growing business, and potentially game-changing technology. “Professionally, my passion lays with giving the broad engineering community access to new “black magic” technology and to remove the black magic part of it. I achieved this with the QTouch technology at Atmel and plan to do the same for the XeThru technology,” said Ingar.

Prior to joining Novelda, Ingar worked at Atmel for eight years as a Systems Architect and Project Manager on Development tools (Atmel Studio, Atmel ICE, QTouch, Wireless). During his tenure at Atmel, Ingar received several patents covering touch technology and debug systems. Earlier in his career, Ingar worked as a Systems Architect and Hardware/Software Engineer at CTM, Stentofon and Autronica Fire & Security.

Besides his work, Ingar is an active family man and enjoys football coaching his kids. He also likes fly-fishing, skiing, hiking, and redecorating his family cabin in the Norwegian mountains.
