Andreas Fridell takes over as Head of Business Region Sweden for the Edtech company IST AB. Andreas most recently comes from the position of Head of Solution Management at IST AB, a position he took on in August 2018. In that role, he had the responsibility to develop the company's long-term strategy and offer in the Swedish market, a work that has driven IST's business strongly forward.

"I am convinced that Andreas will develop our Swedish business activities. During his relatively short time at IST, Andreas has become an esteemed and respected colleague and leader, with a good understanding of the company and its operations. He has a high ambition and a great customer focus and will drive our important work forward to continue as a market leader in Edtech," says Tommy Eklund, CEO, IST Group.

Andreas has many years of experience in business development and sales and has previously worked for nine years in the Armed Forces as well as Chief Commercial Officer at the IT company Fortnox. At Fortnox, Andreas also undertook important change processes, then in the accounting industry.

"The Edtech industry is in an extremely exciting but demanding transformation. I see a lot of similarities between this and the challenges of the accounting industry a couple of years ago - an experience that I now hope to be able to take with me into the Edtech industry. The year at IST has given me good contact areas and a good insight into the customer value IST needs to deliver, as well as what part IST needs to play in the development of a good learning climate in Sweden."

"At IST, we will support and drive digitalisation to facilitate our clients' situation in terms of administration and learning, but also find the guardians' part in the ecosystem. It is an exciting journey that has just begun and I humbly look forward to the challenges and opportunities we face," says Andreas Fridell, Head of Business Region Sweden.

Andreas will take over as Head of Business Region Sweden from September 5, 2019.
