New CEO for Industrivärden

Helena Stjernholm, who has worked for private equity firm IK Investment Partners for 17 years, will succeed Anders Nyrén as chief executive of the Lundberg sphere’s investment company Industrivärden.

“She has a good track record, has done well and worked on issues relevant to Industrivärden. She simply has a suitable background,” said Fredrik Lundberg, chair of Industrivärden, who pointed out that Stjernholm was one of several candidates for the top job.

Those who have previously criticised the culture at Industrivärden lauded the appointment of Stjernholm, whose primary task will be to rebuild trust in the dented business empire and also manage the controversial system of cross-ownership within the sphere.
