"It feels natural that Jesper assumes this role, primarily because he is totally the right person for the assignment in terms of competence but also because I know that we work very well together," says Erik Selin, CEO of Balder.

Jesper Mårtensson has more than 15 years of experience within the property sector and has worked as CFO of SveaReal AB and as a Key Account Financial Manager in Newsec Asset Management, among other positions. He joins the company from ES Fastigheter AB where he primarily was responsible for the group’s accounting and finance functions but he was also active in a number of companies where ES Fastigheter is a larger shareholder. Jesper will take over the role immediately.

"I am entering into this role with great respect and humility. As I have known Erik for ten years and the fact that we work very well together combined with my background, it is natural for me to take on this role," says Jesper Mårtensson.
