She has been a major contributor to redefining our view of leadership – Brave Leadership – that will form the basis for our continued development. I want to thank Emma for her efforts and wish her the best of luck in her future career.”

“My years at AFRY have been a fantastic journey, both for the company and for me personally,” says Emma. “With the launch of the new unified brand, we have laid the foundation for a new chapter. I am convinced that AFRY’s continuing journey will position it as a world-class company in sustainable solutions for businesses and society at large.”
