Magnolia Bostad recruits Clas Hjorth
Magnolia Bostad employs Clas Hjorth to head its hotel development. His first project will be to
lead the development of a new hotel at Frihamnen in Gothenburg.
Clas Hjorth has worked for many years in the real estate industry and comes most recently from DTZ
where he was the Head of Corporate Finance. Before this he was the President of Home Properties, and
before that he was CFO of Hufvudstaden and Diligentia.
In the fall of 2014, Gothenburg Municipality named Magnolia Bostad one of the winners of the land

apartments and a hotel that will have approximately 300 guest rooms, a conference facility and a
restaurant. Clas Hjorth will head the development of this hotel.
“I would like to warmly welcome Clas to our team. He will make an invaluable contribution to
