Eirik Thrygg, Chief Executive Officer of Sektor for many years, and now member of Citycon’s Corporate Management Committee, is leaving the company and won’t take his new position in the pan-Nordic property company.

“After 18 years of working in Sektor, I have decided to make a career change and take a new direction”, says Eirik Thrygg.

Thrygg will remain with Citycon until the end of 2015, but will not assume his new responsibilities as Chief Development Officer, as announced following the acquisition of Norwegian Sektor Gruppen.

”I have committed myself to support the integration process of Sektor into Citycon, before I depart at the end of the year”, says Eirik Thrygg.

“The company respects Eirik’s decision to leave and to continue his career with another company. As one of the founders of Sektor, he has done an outstanding job of bringing this company to the position it enjoys today. We want to thank Eirik for his great contribution in the completion of the acquisition of Sektor. We wish him all the best and success in forthcoming challenges,” says Marcel Kokkeel, Chief Executive Officer at Citycon.

Eirik Thrygg’s new job will be leading Höegh Eiendom. There, he will steer investments of up to 15 billion over the next few years, succeeding Erik Lund.
