Cecilia Granath to become national manager for Sweden2018-08-30 11:00
Cecilia Granath takes up her post as a former regional manager at Tyréns, where she was responsible for the Stockholm region and played a key role in the transformation of Tyréns from a small player to Sweden's fastest growing civil construction consultancy, with projects spanning a wide range of national urban development and infrastructure projects.
“Cecilia is a force that combines a very strong focus on customer needs with motivating leadership and good results. She has more than doubled the level of activity within her own region since 2011, while increasing customer satisfaction and employee commitment at the same time. I’m convinced she will lead the entire Swedish operation with great success,” says President and CEO Johan Dozzi.
“I’m very enthusiastic and proud of the trust that has been placed in me. Tyréns’ focus is clear: we will continue to grow in Sweden and we will continue to make our customers successful. With one arm focused on projects and the other on research and development, we are best-placed within the industry to identify new solutions to future challenges in civil construction. I’m very much looking forward to driving this development together with both employees and customers,” says Cecilia Granath.
Cecilia will take up her new post on 1 September, on the same date that Tyréns establishes its group organisation and groups its subsidiaries into three geographical regions: Sweden, UK and Eastern Europe. Simon Giles, who was formerly head of Global Cites at Accenture, has been appointed as national manager in the UK. Recruitment of a head of operations in Eastern Europe will commence shortly.
“I’m thrilled that the arrangements for the Tyréns group are now in place and that we have the resources we need for further development and growth. Even though we are already successful today, more innovative solutions are needed to address developments in the market and customer expectations, particularly in relation to sustainable cities of the future and the digital sector,” says President and CEO Johan Dozzi.
The newly established group has its registered office in Stockholm and includes the companies Tyréns AB, Tyréns Solutions, Design Evolution, Tyréns A/S, Tyréns UK Holding, Tyréns UK, AKTII, Hilson Moran, Tari and Kelprojektas. The group has a total of almost 2,700 employees and an annual turnover of SEK 2.7 billion.
