March 30, 2011 – Impact Executives, a global interim manager provider, has opened a new office in Sweden. The new business, part of Alumni, an executive search and leadership services organization in Sweden, marries Impact Executives' unique international skills in interim management with Alumni's 20 years' executive search experience. The new business will be headed up by Karin Laurell with support from Anna Hjertstedt. Ms. Laurell joined Alumni in 2000 and built the life sciences practice. Before joining Alumni, she was a management consultant at Accenture, specializing in change management. The new location was established to fulfill growing demand for interim managers – highly experienced executives brought in on short-term contracts to provide hands-on support during periods of growth, change, or loss of key management.
