Samuel’s strategic mindset, combined with a deep understanding of Kinnevik’s portfolio, financial framework and market environment makes him the ideal CFO as we continue to transform Kinnevik into a leading European growth investor. I would like to thank Erika Söderberg Johnson for her contribution to Kinnevik so far and I look forward to our continued cooperation in her role as senior advisor.”

Samuel Sjöström commented: “Having joined Kinnevik some nine years ago and played a small part in creating the Kinnevik of today, I am honoured by the opportunity to continue to serve the team, our investee companies and our shareholders in this new role. I have a deep devotion to Kinnevik and what makes this company so special, and I look forward to us capitalizing on the foundation we have built under Georgi’s leadership over many years to come.”
