Uppsalahem’s Board appointed an additional board meeting on January 21, Stefan Sandberg as new CEO.
Sandberg will be in April 2016 and is currently working as Head of Division at the International Consultancy Company COWI. He succeeds Uppsalahem’s current CEO Mikael Rådegård, who is 63 years old and retires after nearly six years in the post.
Stefan Sandberg has a broad background and experience from the construction and consulting industry with various senior positions from Skanska and BoKlok. In Skanska, Sandberg worked as Purchasing Manager, and subsequently responsible for all woodburning house manufacturing in the Nordic region. Through that latter role, Sandberg was also responsible for the company BoKlok Byggsystem. At the bottom, Sandberg holds a Master of Science degree from KTH, focusing on road and water.
“Under Mikael’s management, Uppsalahem has taken the position as one of the leading companies in the public sector and in Uppsala. Stefan will continue with his experience on the path towards increased customer satisfaction, “said Susanne Eriksson, Chairman of the Board of Uppsalahem. His background from the construction and consulting industry will certainly also give us new approaches to the challenges facing Uppsalahem, Susanne Eriksson concludes.
For the most part, Stefan Sandberg has worked with housing and urban development, both as a consultant and a client.
– Uppsala and Uppsalahem are part of one of Sweden’s most exciting regions. Uppsalahem is a very well-managed company and I am impressed by the good economy and the high new production rate. As a new CEO at Uppsalahem, I can combine my commitment to sustainable urban development, while giving me the opportunity to positively influence Uppsala County’s housing situation.
Access will take place in August 2016.
