The multinational investment company and manager of distressed assets has appointed Fredrik Olsson as its new Chief Financial Officer, the company announced today.
The hire is part of a high-level recruitment drive at the firm, with DDM hiring a number of specialists over the spring months. Over the past seven years, the company has developed a successful platform in Eastern Europe, now worth over €1.4 billion. Olsson, who will take up the position late this summer, will be moving from his role as Finance Manager of LyondellBassel Industries, one of the largest plastics, chemical and refining companies in the world.
“We are delighted to welcome Fredrik as our new CFO,” commented Gustav Hultgren, CEO of DDM. “His background in financial analysis, accounting and investor relations coupled with strong understanding of financial reporting will add strategic support as DDM is entering a new phase of growth and development.”
