Wallestam will report to Anders Jensen, who will become President and CEO of Nordic Entertainment Group.
Jensen commented: “I’m delighted that Filippa will become the new CEO of MTG Sweden and the future CEO of Nordic Entertainment Group Sweden. As Head of Nordic Entertainment Operations and a member of our Nordic leadership team, Filippa has played a vital role in MTG’s success story in the Nordic region. She has outstanding strategic abilities and knows our business like the back of her hand. Filippa is just the right person to continue developing MTG Sweden as the company continues its journey within Nordic Entertainment Group. This appointment shows the career possibilities available at MTG. We always aim to recruit internally, and there’s no limit to how far talents with extraordinary track records like Filippa can go in the company.”
Wallestam said: “I’m extremely proud and excited about my new role. MTG’s Nordic business operates in one of the world’s most competitive markets, and we have repeatedly proven our ability to adapt and evolve where we today are a fully integrated media house within broadcasting, digital communication and content production. MTG’s capacity for continuous renewal and our entrepreneurial culture position us very well to continue growing and to reinforce our position. I look forward to guiding the company into the future as Nordic Entertainment Group Sweden together with the rest of our fantastic team.”
