Catharina heads our work within Board Services in the Nordics, both leading client engagements and driving our thought leadership within board composition and governance. Beyond this, she has an industry focus on the consumer-oriented sectors, e.g. consumer products/services, media, and retail.


Catharina’s assignments include recruitment to boards and management teams as well as client engagement with a broader leadership development focus. Several of her client relationships and assignments stretch beyond the Nordics into Europe and North America.
