With her wide range of experience across the financial services and global FX market and her dedicated focus on the two critical areas of client acquisition and client relationship management, she is well-positioned to help drive our regional expansion efforts and take over responsibility from Niklas Blide, who successfully led our Nordic business, but is retiring.”
