Peter Dahlgren new CEO of Nordnet
On Monday, Peter Dahlgren began his position as CEO of Nordnet. His latest position was with SEB, where he was Head of the business area Life, Pension and Asset Management and member of the executive management.
- The financial industry has to adjust to rapid technological development, more regulations and increasingly aware customers. Nordnet is perfectly positioned in that environment. With 600,000 customers and 240 billion in savings capital, we have a good base to stand on. At the same time, we have the optimal size to be agile and respond quickly to changing customer behavior, says Peter Dahlgren.
Nordnet has recently been bought out from the stock exchange and received a new board in February. Now the new CEO is also in place.
- This is a good and strong recruitment. Peter Dahlgren has broad experience from the financial industry. He is one of the most knowledgeable persons in savings and pension in the country, and has driven the development towards new digital customer offerings. His mission is to take Nordnet to the next level, says Hans Larsson, Chairman of Nordnet.
Peter Dahlgren was born in 1972, and since his employment started in SEB 2008, he has worked as Investment manager, head of Institutional Clients, responsible for the savings organization, and most recently as Head of the business area Life, Pension & Asset Management. Prior to that he has worked for Nordea, Skandia Liv and the state-owned pension fund AP7.
In October last year, Nordic Capital Fund VIII ("Nordic Capital") and Öhmangruppen, through NNB Intressenter, acquired all outstanding shares in Nordnet. At an extraordinary meeting in February, a new board was elected. In addition to Hans Larsson, the board consists of Tom Dinkelspiel and Jan Dinkelspiel from Öhmangruppen, Christian Frick, Partner, NC Advisory AB, Adviser to Nordic Capitals Funds, Christopher Ekdahl, Director, NC Advisory AB, Nordic Capitals Adviser Funds and Blocket founder Pierre Siri.
- It is a strength to work in a private environment with strong and committed owners. We will now build the best customer experience in the world within investment and savings. In order to do that, we have to be even better at understanding our customers' needs and have a higher pace in turning them into concrete deliveries – that goes for interfaces, products as well as new services, says Peter Dahlgren.
