Commenting on the appointment, Jensen said: “We have always had very high ambitions for investor relations to make sure our unique equity story is as broadly known and understood as possible. Building on these ambitions, I am very happy to welcome Sandra to the team. She has a fantastic track record and is highly respected in the market. She will bring new ideas and perspectives and ensure we get even better at our dialogue with investors and the analyst community”.
Åberg added: “I’m very much looking forward to joining Viaplay Group’s exciting journey as one of the world’s fastest growing entertainment businesses. The company has clear goals, strong values and a unique story. Building long-term relations with investors is something close to my heart, and I see many opportunities to develop Viaplay’s investor base over the coming years. And as a huge series fan who admires Viaplay’s support for talented female creators, I’m definitely in the right place”.
