Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – AMF Fastigheter, one of Sweden’s largest real estate companies, has appointed Thomas Erséus (pictured) as its new CEO effective early 2022 after long-serving CEO Mats Hederos announced his decision to retire. Erséus currently serves as the CEO of Almega, an employers’ organization that supports service companies in Sweden, and has served on AMF Fastigheter’s board since the spring of 2020.
Mats Hederos has been part of AMF for 15 years and has been the CEO of AMF Fastigheter since the real estate company was established in 2010. With Hederos turning 65 in March of next year, AMF Fastigheter’s long-serving CEO has decided to retire at the turn of the new year. “This is a decision that has matured over time. I have had very good and inspiring years at AMF Fastigheter, it feels natural to hand over when I reach retirement age in the spring,” says Hederos in a press release. “I am extremely proud of the journey that AMF Fastigheter has made as a company and that I, together with fantastically talented and committed employees, have been able to contribute to the development of Stockholm, including through MOOD District, Urban Escape, Epicenter and Space.”
“Mats has been of crucial importance for AMF Fastigheter’s positive development and, at the same time, has been a much appreciated and skilled CEO and leader.”
