Prior to being an IR consultant, Cecilia worked as an investment banker at Deutsche Bank, Bankers Trust and Alfred Berg.

Annica Elmehagen-Lundquist, Head of Corporate Communications at Axfood AB, comments: “In Cecilia Ketels we have acquired a highly skilled and experienced person who can take Axfood’s very well-managed investor relations to the next level.”

Cecilia Ketels will start her new job after the summer.

“It is extremely inspiring to become part of a team that not only creates the Nordic region’s leading retailer but as part of this also aims to be best within sustainability,” says Cecilia Ketels.
