Mikael Wahlberg, computer scientist with a teaching degree, has been active in the IT industry for over 20 years and has worked in both technology and marketing.
“I can not imagine a more inspiring assignment. IST is active in an industry where digitalisation is accelerating and our position is unique. We also play an important role in the development of society. It is important that we are constantly responsive to our customers and end users in order to maintain our leading role in the market. We have a lot of exciting things going on and I look forward to taking IST to new heights together with our fantastic employees,” says COO Mikael Wahlberg.
