Scandic Hotels appoints new CEO

Even Frydenberg to succeed Frank Fiskers
Scandic Hotels’ board of directors has revealed that Even Frydenberg will take over the position of president and chief executive from Frank Fiskers, who will leave the company this summer.
Frydenberg comes most recently from Starwood Hotels & Resorts. He will start working at Scandic on May 1 and will start his position as president and CEO on July 31.
Even Frydenberg, 53, is a Norwegian citizen and has been working in the hotel industry since 1993. He has had a long career at Starwood and since 2013 has been responsible for its operations in western Europe.
In September 2016, he became one of the chief operations officers at Marriott Europe following the company’s merger with Starwood.
“I am very happy to be able to introduce Even Frydenberg as Scandic’s new President & CEO,” said Vagn Sørensen, Scandic Hotels’ chairman of the board. “He has a solid background from one of the world’s largest hotel companies, at the same time as he has experience from the Nordic market. I am convinced that he is the right person to continue developing Scandic in the next years.”
Frank Fiskers has decided to leave Scandic after eight years as president and CEO. He became CEO in 2007, and after three years outside the company he returned in 2013. Since then, the company has grown from 160 to 230 hotels and the company’s share was listed on Nasdaq Stockholm.
After leaving as president and CEO on July 31, he will be active for a period of time as an advisor to Scandic’s board of directors and executive committee.
