Top manager from Google joins Optimizer Invest
Optimizer Invest continues to draft high profile professionals. Next to join the team is Anders Berglund, former country manager of Google Sweden.
Anders Berglund (40) has during the past two years been head of Google Sweden. Before that, he held various senior positions within the Schibsted Group. From 1 March he takes on a leading position at Optimizer Invest.
The recruitment marks a partially new strategy for Optimizer, who now intends to launch new business ideas and projects of its own, besides investing in other companies.
“We are very pleased that Anders has chosen to join our team,” says Henrik Persson, partner at Optimizer Invest. “He will take a leading role in the Optimizer sphere and will operate and be responsible for new ventures. His enormous expertise in digital communication and business development will be a great asset to us. ”
