As of Monday 15th November 2021, Daniel Askergren joins Valtech as Director of Growth & Business Development for Valtech Sweden. Attracted by Valtech's innovative ambitions and cross-border collaboration, Daniel Askergren becomes part of the global digital agency and adds several years of experience in leadership and a clear objective to significantly grow the business for Valtech, Sweden.

Valtech continues to grow and welcomes Daniel Askergren, a modern-day growth leader and communication strategist. Daniel has close to 20 years of consulting experience as an Advisor, Team Leader and New Business Director on both Nordic and global agency networks and comes most recently from the insurance company, IF.

“It is a privilege to be able to join such a well-established business with so many talented and ambitious colleagues both in Sweden and globally. Valtech is in an expansive phase where I look forward to contributing to us becoming the obvious choice for more and more customers," says Daniel Askergren, “There are endless opportunities for the companies that can support customers in both innovation, business development and technology development. Valtech has an obvious place there.”

Growth and Expansion

Daniel will focus on developing new business in Valtech Sweden, optimizing Valtech’s offerings together with the global teams.

Growth leaders like Daniel are a key component to ensuring we can exploit our competitive advantage in the marketplace. Being non-one-dimensional in his approach and knowledge is a key factor”, says Ulf Sidemo, Managing Director at Valtech, Sweden.

Until recently, Daniel worked on the customer side for one of the leading insurance companies in the Nordics, providing valuable insights into the impact of digitalisation on businesses, working methods and culture.

He has something very few growth leaders have. The experience of wearing two hats – client and agency-side. This has given him the unique perspective to understand what consumers want, how brands need to work and the role agencies such as Valtech need to play”, says Ulf Sidemo.

As the speed of change and the expectations of consumers is evolving faster than ever, Valtech is growing across the globe, developing and expanding its capabilities and deepening its expertise across the board.

The Swedish market is and will continue to be a leading light when it comes to innovation. And our expectations are no different with Daniel’s appointment,” continues Ulf Sidemo.
We are looking to cement our position as one of the leading digital agencies in Sweden, which is validated by our recent Optimizely accolade, as well as clients fully feeling the effect of the complete Valtech offering”.
