Castellum appoints new HR Manager and new Sustainability Manager
Castellum AB (publ) has appointed Anne Thelin-Ehrling to be HR Manager and named Filip Elland to the position of Sustainability Manager for the corporation. Anne Thelin-Ehrling will also be a member of Castellum’s executive group management. The appointments form part of an ongoing process, wherein the company is creating a new corporate structure and establishing even more efficient common support functions.
Castellum, which has been operating through six wholly owned subsidiaries, announced at the beginning of April that the entire operation would be gathered under the same brand. These new appointments should be seen as part of the new, more consolidated background.
Anne Thelin-Ehrling has extensive experience within strategic and operational HR, in the customer- sales- and service industries, as well as the real estate sector. Past employers include SAS and Stronghold Invest AB, Newsec’s parent company. Anne has carried out the assignment of establishing a central HR unit at Castellum since last winter.
Filip Elland – a production and plant management specialist – graduated as a civil engineer from Lund University, in 2011. In 2012, he was employed at Fastighets AB Briggen, a Castellum subsidiary, as Sustainability Coordinator. His duties were divided between the parent company and the Öresund operation.
Castellum has worked steadily with sustainability issues and long-term responsibility since the company was founded, just over 20 years ago. As recently as last autumn, the company was honoured internationally in two separate forums. Castellum received the World Green Building Council’s highest award for Business Leadership in Sustainability – somewhat like a European Championship in sustainability. The company was also awarded the Green Star 2015, and this means that Castellum is one of the world’s highest-ranking companies for sustainability in the real estate sector.
“Deciding for both of these new appointments is another step in taking Castellum to the next level, and casting the mold for our future long-term growth”, says Henrik Saxborn, corporate CEO. “We’re reinforcing local decision-making power while taking full advantage of economies of scale in order to grow. This means we can further develop the business to benefit both our customers and our shareholders.”
