Stockholm names a boss with no experienceNews
Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm has named Fredrik Lindgren as its new CEO.
The blurb says: Fredrik Lindgren has a long and solid experience of leading complex organizations in change. He has worked at Kunskapsskolan Sweden for a total of 12 years, with 9 years as CEO. Prior to that, he held various positions at Investor AB for 12 years. He has built up an extensive network within publicly funded organizations as well as within trade and industry in Sweden.
In other words, he’s in mid-career and has never worked a day in an opera house.
Opera Board Chair Lena Olving said: ‘We are convinced that Fredrik, with his documented leadership qualities and his personality, will develop the organization in collaboration with the employees while respecting their collective know-how, and that he will follow on from Birgitta Svendén’s highly successful tenure.’
