    Scandic’s new hotel in Sundsvall will be a modern and attractive meeting place ideally located in an exciting area where we can see a growing demand for hotel accommodations. We’ve been developing the hotel together with Skanska for the past two years and naturally, it feels extremely positive to be further strengthening our hotel offering in the city
    Peter Jangbratt, Head of Scandic Hotels Sweden
    We’re seeing greater demand for digital self-service solutions in our Nordic markets, which is why we’re introducing a digital booking service for smaller meetings on short notice. This is a much-anticipated feature for anyone who wants to schedule and hold meetings on short notice, regardless of where they are in the Nordic region
    Anna Spjuth, Chief Commercial Officer at Scandic Hotels Group
    Throughout the pandemic, our rate of innovation has been high and we’ve launched several new offerings for our guests. Due to the current situation, digitalization in the entire industry has picked up speed in pace with changed guest and visitor needs and behaviors. The fact that we’re now launching a digital booking service for meetings is a good example of how we are creating flexibility in our meeting business, both for our guests and team members
    Anna Spjuth, Chief Commercial Officer at Scandic Hotels Group
    We’re delighted to have been chosen to deliver an online booking solution for meetings and events to Scandic Hotels. This cooperation further strengthens our mutual belief that customers want to book services online, saving time for both Scandic’s guests and team members
    Joonas Ahola, CEO & Founder of MeetingPackage
    We’re thrilled to be able give this historic Turku hotel a third lease on life. Turku is an important tourist destination for Finland and there is great interest in visiting the city from domestic and international tourists alike. For leisure travelers, Turku is an interesting destination as well as a gateway to the Finnish archipelago. It’s also a fairway for international cruise traffic and important passenger and cargo traffic to and from Sweden
    Aki Käyhkö, Head of Scandic Finland
    It's fantastic to finally open Scandic Hamburger Börs. We’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of interest in the hotel even before it opened. Our hotel rooms are almost sold out on weekends in November and December and we can see a pent-up need to stay on weekdays as well. Now we will work hard to provide as great a guest experience as possible so that going forward, we’ll have a full hotel every day of the week
    Mikko Henriksson, General Manager of the newly opened Scandic Hamburger Börs
    Åsa is a strong leader with broad experience from CFO roles on the Group level. With her solid background, she’ll be a very valuable addition to our team and I look forward to welcoming her to Scandic during a strong recovery period after the pandemic
    Jens Mathiesen, President & CEO of Scandic Hotels Group
    Working with hotels is a dream for me since I love great service and being part of creating people’s experiences. Hospitality is an industry of the future and with its strong brand and corporate culture, Scandic is in a good position to continue its development after 18 tough months. It’s an exciting journey that I’m looking forward to being a part of together with Jens and my new colleagues
    Åsa Wirén, incoming CFO of Scandic Hotels Group
    Before the start of our talent program, the Executive Committee determines focus areas that align with the company’s overall strategy. This year’s talents have done an impressive job deep diving into areas such as digitalization, commercial optimization and human resources, areas that have become increasingly important in the wake of the pandemic. It has been fantastic to follow their development and I’m convinced that they’ll go far within Scandic
    Jens Mathiesen, President & CEO of Scandic Hotels Group
    Continuing to invest in our internal talent program and training team members to become tomorrow’s leaders has been critical during the pandemic. We are a strong and cohesive organization at Scandic and having an additional 30 talents who have now been trained to take on leadership roles is important when we as a company are facing a general lack of skills in our industry
    Maud Samuelsson, responsible for leadership development at Scandic Hotels Group
    The past year has taught us that our working day doesn’t necessarily have to start with stress and rush hour traffic, but also that we need more dynamic environments than our home offices to get inspired. Starting your day with a relaxing, luxurious hotel breakfast is quite possibly the best way to begin your workday. And a breakfast meeting is the perfect way to rebuild your network after more than a year and a half of pandemic living
    Anna Spjuth, Chief Commercial Officer at Scandic Hotels Group
    Both small and large companies are looking for increased flexibility for their employees, regardless of whether it’s at the office or at a distance. At our hotels, we can offer dynamic, flexible and cost-efficient workspaces and environments close to home or on the go, something that has proven to be very popular
    Anna Spjuth, Chief Commercial Officer at Scandic Hotels Group
    Tess and Marcus are two very welcome additions to Scandic’s commercial team and the accelerated innovation journey we’re currently on. They will bring broad expertise in e-commerce and digital service and brand development. I look forward to working with them to continue strengthening and developing Scandic’s offering
    Anna Spjuth, Chief Commercial Officer at Scandic Hotels Group.
    It’s fantastic to be joining Scandic as the hospitality industry begins its restart. There is a strong focus on innovation and digitalization and together with my new colleagues, I look forward to creating commercial growth through an increased focus on the digital customer journey and to further strengthening Scandic’s development going forward
    Tess Mattisson, Head of E-commerce & Customer Digital Development at Scandic Hotels Group.
    Scandic is an exciting company at the epicenter of the hospitality industry and I am both happy and proud to be able to play a central role in the continued work to operate and develop one of the Nordic region’s most well-known brands. As the industry starts up again, I look forward to working with the rest of the Scandic team to create the hotel experiences of the future and welcome both previous and new guests to Scandic.
    Marcus Hammarström, Head of Marketing at Scandic Hotels Group.
    This past year of the pandemic has shown that we can all take responsibility for everything from keeping social distance to staying at home when we have even the slightest symptoms. Every day at our hotels, we meet and inspire thousands of guests, and even small everyday things like making sure we extinguish grills at picnics, traveling as environmentally friendly as possible and putting waste in garbage cans or recycling bins can make a huge difference.
    Magnus Ljungberg, Director of Sustainability at Scandic Hotels Group.
    Scandic Göteborg Central will be the new meeting place in the city whether it’s to launch the latest electric car or just sip a cocktail and enjoy the panoramic view from the rooftop terrace. The vibrant hotel environment will rejuvenate Gothenburg and take the city to new heights, and it is with great excitement that we’re now shifting into a higher gear as we get closer to opening the event and meeting hotel of the future
    Malin Odéhn, General Manager at Scandic Göteborg Central
    We’re in an interesting position as the hospitality industry is undergoing a significant restart. Scandic Göteborg Central is an extremely important way for Scandic to be involved in developing Gothenburg into the Sweden’s foremost city for meetings, events and sustainable tourism. The hotel’s strategic location, just a couple hundred meters from Gothenburg Central Station, and the easy access by road create the right conditions for attracting both domestic and international meeting and event guests going forward
    Kristian Andreasson, District Director for Western & Southern Sweden at Scandic Hotels
    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
    Lina Lilja, General Manager at 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
    Anna Spjuth, Chief Commercail Officer
    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.
    Fredrik Wetterlundh
    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.
    Bitte Ferngren
