“I am really looking forward to becoming part of Knowit’s continued venture into areas where I have both a wide interest and long experience. I hope to be able to contribute with a strong focus on the client, but also to help in continuing to develop Knowit Connectivity as an attractive workplace for employees who want to contribute to Knowit’s vision of creating a sustainable and humane society,” says Lennart Waldenström, Head of Knowit Connectivity.
