Bernt Johansson appointed chairman of Ambio Bernt Johansson, formerly property manager at Skandia, has been appointed chairman of Ledstiernan Mobile Ventures' portfolio company Ambio AB. Ambio is a newly started company, based in Boden in northern Sweden, whose business concept, in brief, is to help property owners manage their properties more efficiently and assure the quality of their management. Bernt Johansson has been property manager at Skandia for 22 years, was a member of Skandia Finans's top management committee, and chairman of The Swedish Federation of Rental Property Owners. In addition, he holds numerous honorary positions and is a member of several boards of organisations and companies within the property and building sector. "With my background and long experience in property and property administration, I can safely say that FOCUZ, Ambio's proprietary management system, will raise the quality of property management and in solve many of the practical service problems experienced by tenants and managers using existing systems," says Bernt Johansson. "FOCUZ has great potential since although it is a technically very advanced product it is remarkably user friendly. In addition, the solution has considerable development potential." Ambio, which recently changed its name from CareTec AB, has developed FOCUZ, a data processing system that integrates property data and presents it on the Internet or on a WAP phone. Property service personnel in the field can send and receive maintenance instructions and operational data on-line. FOCUZ also enables financial specialists and administrative managers to monitor costs, maintenance work, and the management situation. Ledstiernan's wholly owned incubator, Ledstiernan Mobile Ventures, is one of the main shareholders in Ambio with an equity interest of 25 per cent. The other shareholders are the company's three founders: Björn Lindgren, president, Anders Toresson, and Janne Bäcklund.
