Erik Ärnström, Manager
Starting at Ascend shortly after the company was founded, I’m now a manager and have enjoyed being part of building the company - a journey that’s still just begun. I began my career as a management consultant after my Master of Science in Industrial engineering and management at KTH. Travelling is a favorite hobby and I am also a junkie for hiphop concerts as well as podcasts about science, politics and economy.
At Ascend I get to have fun, simple as that. Whether it’s in engagements with clients, training at our internal boot camps or simply hanging out with colleagues on Fridays after work, I always get a real energy boost from the brilliant people around me.
In my work at Ascend I’m engaged in recruitment, branding and marketing as well as competence development and sales and business development. My projects mainly involve business and IT strategy, sales and marketing and IT sourcing in industries like retail, telecom and transportation. What characterizes Ascend is that we’ve managed to combine a strong collaboration with our clients together with the ability to build our own team and culture. This team factor is a key in both the value we deliver to clients and my personal and professional development.
