Scandic Hotels appoints new chief executive

The board of Scandic Hotels has appointed Frank Fiskers to the position of chief executive with the company.

Having held the role from 2007-2010, Fiskers returns to replace Anders Ehrling, who is leaving to take up leadership of Braathens Aviation.

In recent years Scandic Hotels, the Nordic region’s largest hotel chain, has invested significantly in developing and upgrading its existing hotel portfolio and as well as in building modern new hotels.

Fiskers’ key priority as new chief executive will be to further strengthen Scandic’s market position and secure a financial benefit of these major investments.

“Scandic is an innovative company with a great potential.

“I hope this change of chief executive will lead us to achieving our set objectives.

“Anders Ehrling has done a great job over the last couple of years and now Frank Fiskers will drive the business forward,” explained Scandic’s chairman, Vagn Sörensen.

Fiskers was most recently chief executive of the Swedish Cooperative Union and previous to that he amassed extensive experience in the Nordic and international hotel industry.
