Therefore I realize that the continued success of Scaent AB will play a major role in the implementation of the Scaent Group's global strategy. I am fully aware that my new role is not a minor undertaking, but I am confident that the faith shown in my abilities will be confirmed over the coming years", – commented Magnus Astrom.
