In addition to well-documented leadership qualities, Mårten has in his most recent roles as CEO demonstrated a high level of execution and that he is a skilled strategist to develop rapidly growing companies in the best possible way.
During his time as CEO at Eson Pac AB, he succeeded in a short time to grow the sales and increase profitability. He was also a key factor in the company being sold and creating the greatest possible value for the shareholders.
Throughout his career, Mårten has driven both turnarounds of companies and growth journeys, always with a strong focus on profitability and the customer. He has in international environments showcased that he is a natural leader with a high analytical and strategic capacity. The organizational restructurings he has handled displays the ability to create future-proof structures and bringing the entire business forward. There is undeniably a sharpness and strong drive in Mårten which has resulted in him having an impressive journey behind him. We are now very much looking forward to how he will navigate FlexQube towards new heights.”
