Increasor Tech Invest (publ) which is planning a listing during the spring of 2021 have, during an extra general meeting the 5th of January, decided to elect four new members of the board. The process with recruitment of an expanded board, has been going on since September 2020.
The four people that was elected in to the boards is Helena Hallgarn, Magnus Forsbrand, Eleonor Åslund and Magnus Wingqvist. Andreas Trouin and Angelica Jansson is exiting the board, while Mattias Ahlberg remains as board member and head of the board.
Mattias Ahlberg, head of board and responsible for the recruitment process comments: – “It is a great feeling to finally have the board in place, it has been a long process that have both been really interesting and challenging to say the least. Since we went out looking for it during September, approximately 100 people, fully qualified, reached out and wanted to be a part of our journey. It is flattering that we create such a big interest, but also a big challenge in the form of the process of who should go further. Of these, the company have had an initial conversation and interview with approximately a fourth and finally reached the final four. Competence and experience have been important factors, of course, however also to put together a mix of different abilities have been important. After todays board meeting, I am entirely sure that we have put together a team which can create a winning strategy and is fully equipped for a good journey to the stock market. Andreas becomes an external CEO and can therefore focus fully on his executive role while we in the board create the strategy, exactly the way we always wanted it. I also want to thank all those that shown interest for our recruitment, for many interesting conversations, none mentioned, none forgotten.” Ahlberg finishes.
