    I’m extremely proud today that together with my team, I am finally able to open the huge glass sections that form the entrance to Scandic Landvetter. This is where the terminal and hotel lobby of the future flow seamlessly into each other. At Scandic Landvetter, leisure and business travelers are blended in everything from the restaurant with its open kitchen and lobby to the conference spaces with their dynamic meeting facilities. I am now looking forward to welcoming travelers from afar as well as West Coast residents to Scandic Landvetter

    We’ve been wanting to establish ourselves at Göteborg Landvetter Airport for many years. And now, together with strong partners in Swedavia and Midstar and in line with our customers and guests’ wishes, we can offer an international airport hotel that provides opportunities for efficient meetings without even having to leave the terminal. With Scandic Landvetter, we’re taking another step toward strengthening Scandic internationally and also positioning ourselves well as the hospitality industry readies itself for a restart
    Peter Jangbratt, Head of Sweden at Scandic Hotels
    Multi-booking is a feature that leisure and business travelers have requested to further simplify the booking process since earlier, you needed to call customer service to book several stays on one trip. It’s fantastic to be the first in the industry with this new feature that lets you book several stays in one go yourself – just like your own little travel agency

    After a year of pandemic and the changes it has led to in our organization, this is an important recruitment. Fredrik has solid experience of driving business-related change management and a wide range of skills within HR processes and systems in addition to corporate values across several markets.
    Jens Mathiesen, President & CEO of Scandic Hotels
    Scandic is known for its inspiring culture and strong brand, and it’s really exciting to be joining the Scandic team this fall. The hospitality industry has been hit hard by the pandemic and it’s now more vital than ever to maintain a strong focus on employees, common structures and professional development, areas where I can contribute extensive experience.

    It feels absolutely fantastic that thousands of consumers have named us the industry's most sustainable brand, year after year. For us, this is proof that Scandic leads the way by being the most inclusive company for the many people, continues to lead the development towards better food and and beverage with less impact and works to offer all our guests the most sustainable room experience. We are humble before the task and very grateful for the trust of our guests, consumers and decision-makers,
    Magnus Ljungberg, Sustainability Director at Scandic Hotels.
    For many years, Svein Arild has successfully led Scandic’s Norwegian operations. As Chief Portfolio Officer he has driven constructive dialogues with our property owners, which was crucial to get us through a period of extremely low occupancy. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Svein Arild for his contributions to Scandic and I wish him all the best as he now moves on to new challenges. Together with Vice President Business Development Jesper Engman, I will take over responsibility for discussions with property owners regarding lease agreements, a prioritized area for us,
    Jens Mathiesen, President & CEO of Scandic Hotels Group AB.
    I’m proud of what we’ve achieved during my years at Scandic and it was not an easy decision to leave the company. I truly enjoyed my time as Chief Portfolio Officer even though much of the work focused on mitigating the immediate effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on our operations,
    Svein Arild Steen-Mevold.
    Bitte has contributed to Scandic’s ability to make significant changes in our operations in a short period of time, which has been absolutely necessary due to the current market situation. We will now review how we can best organize our HR work going forward as guests return to our hotels and we resume operations after the coronavirus crisis. I’d like to extend a huge thank you to Bitte for her efforts and wish her all the best in her new position
    Jens Mathiesen, President & CEO of Scandic Hotels Group
    The decision to leave has not been an easy one and I have truly appreciated leading Scandic’s work within human resources and sustainability. I’m extremely proud of the work the team has achieved during these months. I look forward to following the company’s continued journey.
