Ålö offers a wide range of exciting positions in a global environment
How did you join Ålö? Could you describe your journey within the company?
Having spent a number of years away from Umeå, I was moving back and
looking for new challenges. Ålö offered an interesting position in a global
setting, which caught my attention. I started as a Business Controller but
eventually I got the opportunity to take on more responsibilities as Head of
Controlling. We are a small team of four Controllers who are working devotedly
to support both the line organization and top management. Our main responsibilities
include reporting, budgeting and participation in various projects.
What is your professional background
I’ve got a Master in Business Administration & Economics. Before joining Alo I had spent 7-8 years in various controlling positions. I’ve always been within the Finance industry and the manufacturing industry is obviously quite different. However, once you develop a certain “controlling mindset” I believe that you can quite easily adapt to new environments.
What motivates you at work?
Alo offers a wide range of exciting positions in a global environment. The pace is high and there are constantly new challenges just around the corner. I’ve got many skilled and ambitious colleagues, who have also become good friends. We often take lunch walks by the river. The setting of our office next to the river is truly amazing!
