Evertiq strengthens organisation and continues on growth path

Evertiq is continuing on its growth path. The rapid growth of recent years, both in terms of turnover and employee numbers, will now be followed by accompanying structural set-up of the company.
Evertiq will close its fiscal year with EUR 2 million in turnover. With soon 20+ employees, a corporate structure where quality products, routines and documentation are centre stage, has become increasingly important. As a consequence, a number of changes within the company’s leadership will be implemented. A new Organisational Structure As the company move into 2020, Irma Björsell will take on the role of CEO of Evertiq New Media AB. Fais Piroe will succeed Mrs Björsell as the new Global Sales Manager. Anke Schröter will take on new responsibilities to grow Evertiq’s business segment ‘Expo’. Dennis Dahlgren, who has been working closely with Ms Schröter as the Managing Editor, will take on the role as Editor in Chief. Furthermore, all four will form the new management team. Evertiq’s founder and current CEO, Henrik Björsell, will continue to actively work within the company and focus on market development. “I’m very excited to take on the challenges of being CEO of Evertiq. My goal is to continue the company on its growth. I’ve been with the company since 2003 and have experienced every facet of it, be it editorial, sales or management,” says Irma Björsell. “My new role will definitely be both demanding and challenging, but – as I’m driven by growth and results – I see this as an exciting opportunity.” Growing in Numbers 2018/19 has also added several new faces to the team. The sales team has been reinforced with two new faces, Johan Björklund and Oliver Ödin. Mr Björklund will take responsibility for Scandinavian and Nordic customers, while Mr Ödin will work with Evertiq's international advertising customers. Patrik Blomqvist has joined the editorial team to take responsibility for the Swedish news site. Before joining Evertiq, Mr Blomqvist worked as a journalist covering the audiovisual industry. Evertiq also branched out across the Atlantic and partnered with Lisa Lucke, based on the US West Coast, who is providing fresh news from and for the North American market. Lucke joins with several years of experience as a journalist, most recently for the US publication I-Connect007. Adding to this is another partnership on the European continent. Christian Schewe, who has been working with Evertiq on the German news site, comes to the team with years of journalistic experience, most recently from German public radio and television broadcaster NDR. Emily Wallace and Jürgen Sedlacek have both been recruited into Evertiq’s fast growing ‘Expo’ business segment and will be working with administration and marketing respectively. Ms Wallace has previously worked as office manager for a photo art studio. Mr Sedlacek has worked more than thirty years within the electronic industry, most recently for C.N. Rood. Growing the Polish business unit To better serve customers in Poland and the wider CEE region, the subsidiary Evertiq Sp. Z o.o. was founded in 2019. From January 2020, Karolina Szymanska and Anna Lewandowska will be the first employees of the new entity. Additionally, the address of the sales office and editorial team has also changed and moved into modern facilities in central Gdansk. “Many of our Polish advertising customers and readers will be familiar with both Karolina and Anna. Both have been part of our team for many years. It feels very nice and rewarding that both continue working for us as part of our team and in our new Polish entity”, continues Irma Björsell. Evertiq’s country manager Lukasz Jaeszke has left the company. “We want to thank Lukasz for his participation in building up a strong brand name in Poland and wish him all the best with his new challenges and responsibilities”, says Henrik Björsell, Evertiq’s outgoing CEO. “The new structure of self-managed and independent teams that work seamlessly with documentation and within a defined framework has helped us grow faster. Our organisation is more effective and is based on strengthened structural capital. All of this has resulted in more satisfied readers and advertising customers. Implementing the same, successful structure for our Polish subsidiary feels like a natural progression of our work”, continues Henrik Björsell. “The demands that we place on ourselves are met by equally high demands from our customers and potential investors. If we want to reach our target turnover of EUR 4 million and have a public ownership by 2023, we have to move into this year with a tightened structure. I feel confident that Irma’s strong commitment and drive will help us to reach these demanding goals”, Mr Björsell concludes. The new organisation and strategy will be presented by Irma Björsell during Evertiq's annual event in San Diego on February 5, 2020, 6.30 PM at the Water Grill, 615 J St, San Diego, CA 92101, USA.
