Fredrik Wirdenius is the new Chairman of the Board at Assemblin

Fredrik Wirdenius, former Board Member at Assemblin, has been elected as the new Chairman of the Board by the Annual General Meeting. Fredrik Wirdenius succeeds Mats Wäppling, who declined re-election and is thus stepping down from Assemblin’s Board of Directors.

Fredrik Wirdenius (1961) holds a Master’s degree in engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm and was elected to Assemblin’s Board of Directors by the Extraordinary General Meeting held in August 2021. Fredrik has held several senior positions within Skanska and was active as President and CEO of property company Vasakronan AB between 2008 – 2019. He currently runs his own consulting business, and is Chairman of the Boards of Willhem AB, 3E Property AB and Hållbo AB, as well as member of the Boards of Axfast AB, Nobelhuset AB and Scandic Hotels Group AB.

“During my time on Assemblin’s Board of Directors, I became acquainted with an exciting and highly skilled company in an industry undergoing strong development. I am very grateful for having been afforded the confidence to lead the work of the Board in the future and I look forward to our continued efforts to strengthen and develop the operations,” says Fredrik Wirdenius, Chairman of the Board at Assemblin.

The Meeting also elected Hans Petter Hjellestad, Investment Advisory Professional at Triton, as a new ordinary Board Member. The remaining members were re-elected, meaning that, in addition to Fredrik Wirdenius and Hans Petter Hjellestad, the Board of Directors now comprises shareholder representatives Young Kim and Anders Thulin, alongside independent members Susanne Ekblom, Mats Jönsson and Per-Ingemar Persson.

“Assemblin has developed very strongly in recent years and is now a profitable and well-run company with great potential. We are very happy to be able to welcome Fredrik Wirdenius as the new Chairman of the Board. His knowledge and previous experience from the construction and property industries is the perfect fit for Assemblin, given the company’s current situation. I would also like to thank Mats Wäppling for his tremendous commitment and contributions on Assemblin’s Board of Directors,” says Young Kim, Investment Advisory Professional at Triton.
