Get to know Viktor Vifell Nilsson
When and why did you join Ascend?
It feels like it was just yesterday that I stepped foot in the familiar office for the first time, but I joined more than a year ago, so the time has really flown by. I have a background in industrial engineering and management and have previously worked at another management consulting firm. To be honest, I was not planning to change company at the time, but after meeting one of my soon-to-be colleagues for a fika, I got intrigued to experience how it was to work at a smaller boutique firm.
What do you think makes Ascend unique?
If I were to explain what makes Ascend unique, I would say the entrepreneurial mindset. Everyone is encouraged to contribute to the development of the firm, and if you have any new ideas or input on how something can improve you have all the possibilities needed to explore it. The combination of hardworking and humble colleagues creates a team-oriented, solid culture, and we often hang out outside of the office as well.
What are you doing/have you been involved in at Ascend?
Working at a management consulting firm can offer several benefits, such as the opportunity to work on various projects across different industries and clients. At Ascend, I have worked with both local scale-ups and global companies, mainly within commercial excellence and sustainable business. Continuing my career at Ascend, it will be interesting to see how we can leverage Knowit’s extensive ecosystem of new colleagues and clients.
