Mr. Sunnemark is an experienced business leader who has been CEO of several growth companies, including the listed companies Feelgood, Paynova and Jobline.

Mr. Per Sunnemark is an experienced and successful business executive with extensive experience in managing companies that provide services for both the corporate and private market.
