Åsa Holmberg new EVP in Knowit’s corporate management teamPublished 06 Mar 2018
Åsa Holmberg will, as of March 6, take over as Executive Vice President of Knowit’s largest business field, Solutions. Åsa currently works as the regional manager of Stockholm and will, in her new role, become part of the corporate management team. Knowit Solutions has around 1,200 employees in the Nordic region.
Åsa will replace Johan Strid who has held the role since 2015 and has worked for Knowit since 2011. Johan is leaving the company at his own request to move forward as CEO of Prevas AB. He will start the new position during coming summer. He will take up these duties not later than August 1.
- I am very happy that Åsa has agreed to take on this new role. She will add both experience and competence to our management team. Åsa has during her time at Knowit showed that she has an appreciated leadership style, a focus on our clients and a strategic competence that contributes to business development, for both us and our clients, says Per Wallentin, CEO.
Åsa Holmberg has an M. Sc. from the Royal Institute of Technology and has worked at Knowit since 2013. Åsa has been in the IT sector for more than twenty years and has had leading roles at several consultancy firms.
- I am greatly looking forward to continuing developing Knowit’s offering and enjoy working for a company that is truly at the cutting edge of the digital transformation. Within the business field Solutions we take part in creating new innovative solutions for our clients, supported by the latest technology, and we are seeing a continued strong demand for our services, says Åsa Holmberg.
Knowit recently presented a report for the fourth quarter showing a year with profit at an all-time high. The full year 2017 was another record year, as regards profit and sales as well as new recruitment.
- It is wonderful that we have had the chance to recruit internally for the role as EVP of Solutions. I have enjoyed working with Johan Strid, who has had an important role in our developmental journey, and I am convinced that Åsa, who already has an important strategic role in the company, will take up the baton and continue to propel the great development we are seeing within both Solutions and Knowit as a whole, says Per Wallentin.
