Nicklas Jungander:

”As the global business landscape undergoes rapid transformation, the manufacturing sector stands at the forefront of change. With the rise of digitalization, Industry 4.0 technologies, and the growing need for sustainable production, effective leadership in manufacturing has never been more critical. Leaders in this sector must navigate complex challenges such as supply chain disruptions, geopolitical uncertainties, and the ever-increasing demand for innovation.

As such, MU and our global Manufacturing team of +50 experts, are committed to helping and guiding our clients in identifying, assessing and placing executives, who can drive forward-thinking strategies, harness emerging technologies, and lead sustainable initiatives, shaping the future of manufacturing and driving global business transformation.”

He has long-standing experience with international business clients worldwide, advising senior leaders on company strategies for 15 years.

His new appointment means that he is now heading MU's Manufacturing Practice, but other MU practices benefit as well from Nicklas vast experience.
