I have been fortunate in my career to come across a great number of remarkable and truly inspiring individuals, both as business partners and colleagues. This, for me, is the greatest reward.

His M&A advisory experience includes sell-side transactions and complex situations, including cross-board public offers, hostile defenses and carve-outs.

John advises companies about accelerating growth and reaching new markets outside the region, as well as providing access to foreign organizations looking to invest in the Nordics. He has advised clients on transactions across a broad range of sectors including consumer goods, industrial manufacturing, professional services, building components and logistics.
