Jon Risfelt was elected new Chairman of the Board at the Bisnode shareholders’ meeting on June 3.
Bisnode’s new Chairman of the Board is Jon Risfelt who previously has been the CEO of the cell phone carrier Europolitan, the travel company Nyman and Schultz AB as well as for the pharmaceutical company Gambro Renal. Today Jon runs his own business with focus on board work, advice and mentorship. To name a few, he is on the board of the auto chain Bilia, consultancy firm Knowit, the biotech company Ortivus and the telecom company Dialect.
”Bisnode has gone through a significant change over the past few years, during which the business has been more focused and integrated, and the company now acts under a common brand. Today we are well under way of the next step during which the focus of Bisnode and the board will be to expand the business. Jon Risfelt has a solid experience from working in organizations in which development and sales of technology based products and services that make life easier for the customers are in focus. That means that he has an excellent basis of experience to lead the work of the board”, says Henrik Blomé, member of the board and Investment Director at Ratos.
”Bisnode is an interesting and exciting company with a strong position in an agile industry. I have extensive experience from adjacent industries facing similar challenges. I look forward to contributing to Bisnode’s success and growth”, says Jon Risfelt, new Chairman of the Board at Bisnode.
Jon succeeds Ingrid Engström who resigned at the annual meeting on March 26 in order to take on the role of CEO for IFL. Phil Cotter and Andreas Schönenberger have also accepted new management roles, which means that they are no longer available for board assignments at Bisnode.
