Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Brummer & Partners are making changes to the organisation’s leadership following a self-requested resignation from the current CEO Klaus Jäntti. Ola Paulsson (pictured right) has been named new CEO for the group.
Paulsson has been with Brummer since 2004 and has worked closely with management and the Board of Directors on group-related matters for many years. His most recent role was as COO of the umbrella fund Brummer Multi-Strategy (BMS) and before that he has had several senior positions in the group, a press release states.
As new managing director and portfolio manager of BMS, Brummer & Partners has appointed Mikael Spångberg (pictured left), who has been working for the fund Nektar for the last five years as deputy managing director. Spångberg will work alongside Patrik Brummer in managing the BMS fund.
In connection with the change of managing director, BMS is making further changes to its organisation. The current head of research, Markus Wiklund, will become deputy managing director/COO and the analyst Kerim Celebi will take over as head of research.
In a comment to the organisational changes, Patrik Brummer, Chairman of Brummer & Partners and Brummer Multi-Strategy AB, says:
“Ola and Mikael complement each other perfectly. Both have long experience and in-depth knowledge of our business, both strategically and operationally. Ola will be able to step into the role quickly as he knows the group maybe better than anyone. Mikael has the most relevant background for the role of MD of BMS. In their respective roles they have what it takes to successfully lead and take the group forward.”
