Management change at Attendo Scandinavia in 2021
Attendo’s current Managing Director for Attendo Scandinavia, Ammy Wehlin, will retire at the turn of the year 2020/2021. In connection with this, Ulrika Eriksson will become the new head of the business area and will join the executive management team.
Ammy Wehlin joined Attendo in 2000 as Regional Director, and rapidly advanced to become Managing Director for Attendo Scandinavia.
“Ammy has played a prominent role in developing Attendo into the Nordic region’s leading care company, where we have been at the forefront for the past two decades. I want to express my gratitude at this point for the great contributions that Ammy has made for Attendo and for the entire care industry,” says CEO and President Martin Tivéus.
Ammy Wehlin will be succeeded by Ulrika Eriksson, who comes most recently from the role of CEO at KungSängen and has extensive experience from senior positions.
“I am delighted that Ulrika Eriksson will take the leadership role for the business area next year. Ulrika has solid management experience from both the private and public sectors and has successfully developed service and customer offerings, digital development and change management. I look forward to having Ulrika on the team and together develop the best care in the Nordic countries,” says Martin Tiveus.
“It feels great to take on this important role in developing Attendo’s Scandinavian operations. Attendo has been a pioneer in developing high quality care and to solve care challenges for local authorities in the Nordic countries. I look forward to continuing to develop Attendo together with all the committed employees,” says Ulrika Eriksson.
Ulrika Eriksson, born in 1969, has a master’s degree in Business and Economics from Stockholm School of Economics. She has held a number of management positions, most recently as CEO of KungSängen Sverige AB. Earlier positions include Deputy CEO of Apoteket AB and Deputy CEO of Reitangruppen (Pressbyrån/7eleven). She is a board member of Systembolaget AB. Ulrika will take up her role on 1 January 2021, but will begin her employment in the autumn of 2020 and work in parallel with Ammy.
