With their substantial experience, the new board members will contribute to developing the company.
Chairman Ivar Tollefsen is looking forward to working with the new members:
“Fredrik Reinfeldt has an impressive political career and has, after leaving office as Prime Minister of Sweden, continued to have a strong voice in societal and environmental topics. He is a perfect match for Heimstaden’s vision of Friendly Homes and our high ambitions of contributing to society. Vibeke Krag brings extensive financial and leadership experience from strong industrial companies. Being Danish, she has valuable knowledge about Denmark, Heimstaden’s largest market. I look forward to working with them both at Heimstaden.”
