Ulrika Lindmark to leave Science Village Scandinavia AB
After almost six years at the helm of Science Village Scandinavia AB, Ulrika Lindmark is leaving the company. Ulrika has been CEO of Science Village Scandinavia AB since 2013. Since Ulrika Lindmark took over the role of CEO, the company has gone from being in a very early stage of its development to having two zoning plans finalised for the area and a tramway that will soon be completed, with construction of the first two buildings planned to commence during 2019.
”During my years at Science Village Scandinavia AB I have gained an insight into the enormous potential that ESS and MAX IV means for Sweden. If Science Village is developed in the right way, Sweden’s opportunities to utilise and benefit from the research facilities will increase significantly. It has also been a privilege and joy to have been given the opportunity to work with the development of a major Science Centre at Science Village – one of the most inspiring work assignments a person can have”, says Ulrika Lindmark.
An architectural design competition for the new Science Centre is nearing completion, and the winner will be announced at the beginning of July. If everything goes according to plan, the Science Centre, which is planned to be located just a stone’s throw from the future ESS tram stop, will be open to the public in 2024.
”The company is now in a stable situation and is well equipped for the future. The major initial issues have been resolved, and the company has a very competent organisation that will succeed with its assignment even after my departure”, says Ulrika Lindmark.
The search for a new CEO for Science Village Scandinavia AB will start during the summer. Ulrika Lindmark is moving to SMT Malmö Exploatering AB, where she will work with the development of a new residential housing area on the current site of the Jägersro horse racing facility.
”During her years as CEO, Ulrika Lindmark has led this company with great merit. I am very sorry to see her go, but at the same time I want to wish her every success in her future endeavours”, says Bengt Holgersson, Chairman of the Board for Science Village Scandinavia AB.
