We are happy to announce the arrival of new Chief Marketing Officer Maria Sandström Anderson, who joined us on January 11th. Maria is a highly experienced market analyst and strategist, having held several senior positions, most recently at Svensk Bilprovning AB and before that at PostNord. Before starting her career in marketing, Maria worked as a Management Consultant at CapGemini specializing in bank and insurance. Hence, she is intimately aware of what it means to work in the financial industry and understands our core business very well.
”I’m thrilled to be joining FCG and to participate on the exciting journey that lies ahead as we will expand the business into new markets. I’m very proud to be working for the number one GRC firm in financial services in Northern Europe.”
Maria Sandström Andersson
Maria, what brought you to FCG, and what are your initial predictions for the future of our industry?
The financial industry is facing new and increasing challenges driven by digitalization (and fueled by the pandemic), continuing regulatory demands and the global political situation. The need for managing risks and ensure a secure and stable business is greater than ever, and this will be the case for the entire industry in the years to come. In order to secure a healthy business in this environment, the demand for cutting edge competence and solutions will continue to grow, and it is a privilege to be working with the leading provider in this area contributing to shape the future.
Wherein do you see the strengths of FCG, and are there any special areas you look extra forward to diving into?
FCG has a strong track record of successful and long-term client partnerships, ranging from strategic advisory to outsourcing services, and we leverage the latest technology to develop new services and IT solutions based on our customers’ needs. I particularly look forward to help launch these new services in the coming months.
How have your first days been, considering the fact that you haven´t been able to physically meet your new colleagues?
It has been a great onboarding! There is a very warm and welcoming culture at FCG, and I immediately felt as a part of the team. Using digital meetings comes very natural here, and works so well it almost feels like meeting in person. But of course I’m looking forward to meeting all my new colleagues at the office again as soon as we can safely do so.
”I am thrilled to welcome Maria to FCG at this exciting time for the company. Her proven expertise and experience will help us clarify our position in the market, identify new opportunities to better serve our customers and ultimately speed up our international growth to secure the position as a leading European GRC company.”
