PRESS RELEASE

Vinge strengthens its board of directors and management

Nov. 7, 2018 About the firm

Advokatfirman Vinge has developed the organization in order to strengthen and render the operations more effective.

During the autumn, Vinge’s governance model has been amended through changes in the board of directors and management group. The board of director is expanded with two new seats in order to more accurately reflect the business operations. The new members of the board of directors are Marcus Glader and Mattias Schömer. The management group has also been strengthened with three more members and now consists of nine persons. In addition, a seat on the management group is reserved for the most recent employee at Vinge, according to rotating schedule. The seat is introduced in order to obtain benefits from new competence and ideas as well as to give the management group access to an outside perspective. In parallel, Vinge has commenced extensive strategy work which will take place until 2019.

“In terms of revenues, Vinge is approaching its best year since we started in 1983 and with a high degree of activity in all practice areas. Among other things, we are in first place in the M&A operations statistics in respect of transactions performed,” says Maria-Pia Hope, CEO. “We view this as the right time to build the organization and make it even stronger and agile. We conduct business on a changing market and we need to constantly be at the forefront in order to continue to deserve the confidence of our clients.”

The changes also affect the HR activities, management as well as internal and external communication in order to further strengthen and clarify the employer branding offer and corporate culture.

“We believe in the individual and the individual’s ability to make a difference,” says Maria-Pia Hope. “For us it is important that employees are given real possibilities to affect their work, to grow within their chosen profession and to contribute with their own personality. These principles are fundamental to a strong corporate culture with deep roots, which we are now systematically strengthening and making clearer to the world at large.”

As part of the communication, Vinge is today releasing a short film called “The Seat”, which includes 18 Vinge employees in the cast characters. The film portrays the manufacturing process of a seat – which gives new employees direct influence. There are three copies of the seat and these will be used at Vinge’s management group meetings.
