New head of administration at the secretariat

Researchers and other recipients of funding from Mistra will encounter a new face in their contacts with the secretariat this autumn. Birgitta Jonsson Palmgren is taking over as the new Chief Financial Officer at Mistra from September.

Birgitta Jonsson Palmgren’s background includes positions as a financial director and controller in the energy sector. She has also worked as an accountant. Her most recent employer was Fortum.

‘Using my experience in what is, for me, a new area will be exciting. I hope to be able to build further on existing ways of working, develop them and contribute a few new ideas. Since it’s a small secretariat my job will involve broad responsibilities, a varied range of tasks and contacts with different people, which will be enjoyable and stimulating.’

Palmgren took up her new position at Mistra on 9 September. Josefin Lönberg, who was in charge of administrative work at the secretariat jointly with the former Chief Financial Officer Fredrik Gunnarsson, will continue to work part-time until year-end.
