Adapteo Group adds Chief Sustainability Officer and Chief Commercial Officer to its Executive Management Team

As of March 2023, Adapteo appoints two new roles to the Group Management Team. Jeffrey De Clercq assumes the position as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), effective March 1. Adapteo also appoints Lina K Wiles as Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) as of March 13. Both roles will report to Johanna Persson, President and CEO of Adapteo.

Adapteo, a leading partner in adaptable and circular building solutions in Northern Europe, has had substantial growth in revenues in the last few years. As the company now enters the next phase of its growth journey, Jeffrey de Clercq joins Adapteo in the newly appointed role as CCO. Jeffrey comes from the position as Market Group Sales & Marketing Director, UK & Nordics at Otis Elevator. He brings extensive experience from 15 years in senior sales and marketing positions.

As CSO, Lina K Wiles will be reporting directly to the CEO. Most recently, Lina held the role as Head of Sustainability at one of Sweden and Denmark’s leading fuel companies OKQ8.

Lina K Wiles will be joining the management team on March 13.

Adapteo’s sustainability ambitions are set high, and we see a need to separate our sustainability work into its own function to accelerate our sustainability efforts even more. Our new Chief Sustainability Officer will report directly to me and play a key role to our customers, as I am convinced that our dedication to sustainable development will be a competitive advantage for Adapteo on our journey forward”, said Johanna Persson, President and CEO.

“I am glad to welcome both Jeffrey and Lina to the team who within their respective domain will add competence, leadership and drive to Adapteo’s growth journey. Our strategy and business plan emphasizes growth and exploring new business opportunities, which puts higher demands on the entire organization.
