Areim Boosts Team with Strategic Recruitment

17 December 2019

A dynamic and robust organisation is key to Areim’s ongoing development and expansion. During 2019 we have strengthened our team through several strategically important hires. Areim has now grown into a business with nearly 60 employees, four funds, and a total of SEK 16bn under management.

To optimise business operations as we continue to expand, Anna Ösund-Ireland was appointed COO in the spring. Anna has over 20 years of international banking experience, whilst based in London and the Middle East.

In January Anders Kjellin joined as Head of Asset Management. With nearly 30 years of industry experience, he heads up our property development and management team building on their successful work and to drive further expansion. Anders previously worked at Vasakronan, initially within property development then becoming Regional Manager for southern Sweden, a position he held for 15 years.

Emma Otterhem joined as Head of Legal in October. She has over 15 years of legal experience and was most recently Senior Legal Counsel at the Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund (AP4). Prior to that Emma was with an international law firm for ten years where she specialised in transactions and investments, largely in the real estate sector.

Ylva Wirenstrand Ekelund joined Areim’s finance team in the fall. She was appointed Finance Manager with responsibility for all active funds, overseeing the team of Fund Controllers. She has over 15 years of finance and advisory experience from the real estate sector. Ylva was most recently Business Controller and Finance Manager at Wästbygg Project Development.

“A company is only as good as its people. We’re therefore extremely delighted to have attracted such highly qualified professionals to our growing firm”, says Therese Rattik, CEO of Areim. “Our aim is to create an environment where all our team members have the opportunity to thrive. Only then can we continue to improve business operations and create value that will last into the future”.
