In a short time, he has put structure in place that positions the Group well for additional acquisitions as well as organic growth. His experience, intellectual sharpness, financial expertise and network have brought much to the Group as well as those of us who have had the privilege of working closely with him. I am pleased that Lars will continue to be available in an advisory role, and I speak for myself as well as the management, Board and employees when I say that we look forward to more exciting projects together moving forward", comments Marcus Teilman, President and CEO.
“I joined Fragbite Group with the ambition of taking part as a driving force in an innovative business that had the potential to be at the forefront. And that is what happened; Fragbite Group is breaking new ground in what can almost be called a revolution in one of the world's largest entertainment industries. I am very happy to have been a part of that. Now as I move on to focus on my board directorships, transitioning into an advisory role and contributing with specific efforts in various projects going forward fits me perfectly. The coming six months my focus will be on continuing to build the finance function, supporting Group M&A activities as well as preparing a solid handover for my successor," comments Lars Johansson
