He takes over from Daniel Asplund, who a strong foundation these past two years.

I’m pleased that Alexander accepted the challenge, and in a short time, he has proven to be a valuable addition to InterEast, says Marcus Fagerlund, COO.

Alexander Zachrisson expressed his thoughts on the role, stating, “I was drawn to the position at InterEast because it offers a more prominent role in a smaller company, the opportunity to work on an exciting product, and the managerial aspects of a modern tech role. I look forward to building and collaborating with our diverse, dedicated team and embracing the challenge of innovation across various areas of the business. This opportunity was too exciting to pass up.”

To position InterEast for long-term success in the increasingly digital transport industry, Alexander will collaborate closely with InterEast’s senior leadership team. His expertise in leadership, product development, and digital know-how will contribute significantly to taking the company to the next level.
