Catena confirms Hellberg as new chief executive

4 June 2018

Catena Media has today (Monday) confirmed Per Hellberg will take over as chief executive with immediate effect.

In March, Catena announced the initial appointment of Hellberg, saying he would assume the role no later than September 3.

He joins Catena from digital magazine and application service Readly, where he had been chief executive since 2013.

“I am ready and strongly motivated to take Catena Media’s journey of growth a further step forward,” Hellberg said.

“At Catena Media, I will be able to combine my drive, experience, leadership skills, expertise and knowledge of online lead generation.”

Hellberg replaces Henrik Persson Ekdahl, who has been serving as acting chief executive since the departure of Robert Andersson in October last year.

Ekdahl, the largest shareholder in Catena through a holding in Optimizer Invest, will now return to his role as a board member of Catena.
