Thomas Lundberg new Managing Director for Crosskey Banking Solutions
Thomas Lundberg has been appointed to be the new Managing Director for Crosskey, the Åland Bank’s wholly owned subsidiary that delivers IT solutions to the financial sector. He will be assuming his new duties on 1 April 2012 and will be replacing Carita Weiss who has been Managing Director since 2008 and had previously decided to leave the company.
Mr. Lundberg is currently the Deputy Managing Director for the gaming company Paf and is responsible for the company’s Internet gaming business area.
Mr Lundberg has a law degree from Uppsala University and has worked for the Bank of Åland. He was a legal adviser for Linklaters Advokatbyra in Stockholm between 2002 and 2005 and also been employed at Lehman Brothers in Great Britain for a short period of time.
So that Crosskey can reap the best benefits of Mr Lundberg’s experience, he will be working with the company group’s executive management where he will provide support and work closely with Managing Director Peter Wiklöf on issues that concern the entire company group.
“We are very happy to have succeeded in recruiting Mr Lundberg to the position as Managing Director for Crosskey. The company has grown vigorously during the last years, and we see tremendous growth potential since the demand for customer adapted system solutions in the financial sector is increasing”, says Mr Wiklöf, Managing Director and Group Executive for the Bank of Åland.
“My six years working for Paf have been very educational especially since I have been able to work with growth issues in five different countries simultaneously. But when the offer to be Managing Director for Crosskey came up I felt that it was time for new challenges. I very much look forward to meeting all of the personnel at Crosskey and beginning to work with them”, says Mr Lundberg.
Ms Weiss had previously decided to leave the company but will remain in her current position until Mr Lundberg has begun to work in his new position, so that the change in management goes as smoothly as possible.
“Ms Weiss has been Managing Director and responsible for Crosskey’s successful expansion during the last years. Under her leadership the company has developed into a company whose services are increasingly in demand, not least in larger IT projects and in the area of mobile system solutions. I wish her luck in the future”, says Mr Wiklöf.
