Åkestam Holst, the Swedish creative agency which forms part of the North Alliance, has named Jenny Kaiser as its chief executive director with the remit of leading the business culture and ensuring the creation of award-winning creative work.

Kaiser was deputy chief executive until stepping up in the summer to become acting chief executive following the resignation of Johan Östlund.

Following that resignation, Jonathan Pettersson, CEO of the North Alliance and country manager for Sweden told Adweek, “Our focus forward is to continue to build a world-class agency with strong values, work and relationships with both our clients and staff.”

“I would not wish the circumstances and conditions of my admission on anyone, but in times of hardship and adversity, you must consider the needs of the business and the employees and be present,” commented Kaiser on her appointment.
