The board of directors of Byggfakta Group Nordic HoldCo AB (publ) have today appointed Mr Dario Aganovic to take over as CEO of Byggfakta Group with effect from October 12, 2022, a role currently held by Mr Stefan Lindqvist, who has been with the company for 37 years. Mr Aganovic resigned earlier this year from his role as CEO of AddVision, a company within the AddLife group.
Stefan Lindqvist has previously informed the board of directors that he, in due course and when a new suitable CEO could be identified, would like to step down as CEO of Byggfakta Group, with the aim of continuing to offer his services to the company as a member of the board of directors, should the nomination committee recommend and ultimately the shareholders so decide.
Mr Aganovic has a strong track record of leading complex, international businesses and creating shareholder value through corporate development in his previous leadership roles. The availability of Mr Aganovic accelerated the succession process.
“After 37 years with Byggfakta, it is time for me to step down from the CEO role. Byggfakta has been a tremendous success story which has accelerated in recent years and is now leading the digitalisation of the construction industry globally. I am very pleased to see Dario Aganovic as my successor and the fact that he was available was very much a catalyst in my decision. I would like to thank all our employees for the fantastic years together and look forward to many more to come in a different capacity”, commented Stefan Lindqvist, CEO of Byggfakta Group.
“I very much look forward to taking over from Stefan and joining the Byggfakta team. Byggfakta is one of the most remarkable businesses I have come across in my career, offering superior value to its clients which is shown by the high growth and retention rate that the company demonstrates in its subscription base. I am further pleased that Stefan has the intention to stay with the business in a different capacity. His expertise and experience will continue to be a valuable resource going forward”, said Dario Aganovic, incoming CEO Byggfakta Group.
“On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to thank Stefan for his long tenure and for the remarkable achievement of building Byggfakta into a global digital ecosystem and industry leader. It is a fantastic company with a leading market position that Dario now takes over the leadership of. A warm welcome Dario, to the Byggfakta Group!”, said Henrik Lif, Chairman of the board
