Märit Sareyko becomes new Managing Director for Valtech Sweden
April 11, 2022
As of April 7th 2022, Märit Sareyko joins Valtech as the new Managing Director for Valtech Sweden. With declared ambitions of doubling their size, Valtech brings Märit on board to accelerate regional and local changes, ensuring the sophisticated Swedish Market gets the best Valtech has to offer.
Märit joins Valtech in a time where the global business transformation agency is on an explosive growth journey both locally in Sweden and worldwide, with a declared goal to double the size of the agency over the coming few years. To further enable the growth, Märit is brought in to leverage her passion and expertise in driving change in complex organizations, most recently as Managing Director for Nordic Morning.
“We are very happy to welcome Märit, not only in Sweden but in our European Senior Leadership team. Her experience and personality are a great fit to Valtech’s culture and ambition. Sweden is one of the most digitally mature markets full of amazing digital talent! Märit is the perfect match to ensure the necessary strong regional collaboration, to ensure that the best of Valtech is made available to the sophisticated Swedish clients” says David Gompel, Executive Vice President, Regional Manager Valtech Europe.
People and scale matters
Throughout Märit’s career and the organizational changes she has helped drive, people have always been at the core:
“For me, it’s all about the people. Since we first started our dialogue, I was impressed with the positive attitude and strong sense of culture in everyone I’ve met. Valtech’s growth journey is grounded in deep business transformation and digital technology expertise, I am excited to join such a professional and dynamic team, with whom I have a shared vision.”
Sparked by the people in Valtech, Märit’s interest grew once the width and depth of the capabilities in the growing agency was presented:
“A lot of agencies market themselves as partners in digital transformation. But Valtech truly has the experience, the muscles and the competence to actually act as an advisor, guide and partner to their clients when driving transformation through innovation. The global reach of the organization makes it possible to leverage experiences from a wide variety of clients, markets, industries and experiences, while all adhering to the strong Valtech culture and dedication to truly help clients.”
Continuously expanding reach and capabilities
Throughout the last decade, Valtech has made significant moves, evolving from a digital agency with strong local ties, to being a truly global agency, dedicated to helping some of the biggest global brands transform their businesses, enabled by digital in all aspects. In Sweden, this transition is most recently visible with the acquisition of the well renowned creative agency, House of Radon, in 2021, and the launch of Valtech Sweden’s dedicated Business Transformation team.
David: “Our foundation and what we are known for in most of our markets is our technical expertise, and here in Sweden that is particularly our unmatched capabilities on the Optimizely platform. As digital continues to have greater impact on all aspects of a business, we are working as a global company to support every step of our clients’ business transformation journey.”
