“Nimo offers products that are right on time. Sustainability issues are highly relevant for both individuals and businesses, and the world's resources will not be enough if we continue to waste as we do today.”

“I have always enjoyed being cross-functionally responsible and I am quick to understand the challenges and opportunities of the big picture.”
Per Fjaestad has always been based in western Sweden, and Skaraborg is particularly close to his heart. Per grew up in Skövde and after his last assignment abroad, Per ended up in Lidköping. He now lives in Mariestad and is looking forward to getting to know the region better.
“The more I talk to the people at Nimo, the more engaged I become. They are passionate about the company, there is a viable industry here that wants to remain in Sweden and develop internationally. It fits well with my values; I want to help Swedish industry grow.”
