New CEO for SF Studios


Iréne Lindblad, currently the CEO of Jarowskij, has been appointed as the new CEO of SF Studios.

Lindblad has been CEO of Jarowskij for 11 years and was previously program director at MTG. She takes up her new post at SF Studios on October 16.

Jan Bernhardsson leaves the role of acting CEO and returns to being chairman of the board. Erik Haegerstrand, CEO of Bonnier Group, which owns SF Studios, and who has been the chairman of the board, remains a member of the board. In addition, two new members will be elected to the board of SF Studios: Casten Almqvist, formerly among other positions CEO of Bonnier Broadcasting, and Sara Börsvik, CFO of Epidemic Sound and former CEO of Bonnierförlagen.

Bernhardsson commented: “Iréne Lindblad has a background that makes her an excellent fit as CEO of SF Studios. She is a recognized leader with experience in both film production and distribution and as a buyer of content. SF Studios is a long-term player in the Nordic market, and Iréne, who has a deep understanding of the industry, is the right person to lead the business.”

Lindblad said: “I am extremely happy and proud to be entrusted with leading the Nordic region’s (and one of Europe’s) leading film studios, SF Studios. Times are turbulent for our industry, and it is undergoing major changes. In this transition, SF Studios is a safe and stable player with exciting growth opportunities. I look forward to working with all the talented employees to ensure that we can deliver on our ambitious plans.”
