Cooach Group has enjoyed tremendously strong growth in 2021 and has set a very ambitious growth target for 2022. In connection with the pandemic, new business opportunities were opened up for Cooach digital business support, prompting us to take the decision to increase the growth rate sharply, including international expansion, primarily in Spain and Poland. In 2021, a new operating model was introduced, the company’s offering was developed into a digital subscription model and the company was strengthened with a strong external board of directors that is actively involved in the company’s development. In addition, Cooach brought in external funding to execute on the growth plan.
During the autumn, Cooach started the recruitment of an operational manager for Cooach Group and the interest far exceeded our expectations. With his strong and relevant background and inquisitive, forward-thinking personality, Jörgen Stattin was our dream recruit. Jörgen has experience in entrepreneurial companies, in consulting roles as well as management positions in multinational companies. Among other things, he co-founded SCA (current Essity) Global Business Services, a global unit with over 900 employees that handled all business support such as current accounting and bookkeeping, financial reporting and salaries to the Group.
Jörgen has been COO in the dental industry for the past four years and most recently came from a role as COO and profit manager for Dentalum Operations AB (publ).
“I have had the privilege of being involved early and automating transaction services at large multinational companies. In recent years, I have also experienced the importance of being able to focus on the core business as an entrepreneur and growth company and feel confident that the infrastructure required to operate companies works efficiently and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations “, says Jörgen Stattin.
The Cooach business model with automated services supported by experts is exactly what I’ve been missing as COO. I look forward to contributing to the continued development of Cooach’s customer offering and attracting the best employees and consultants in the markets in which we operate.Jörgen Stattin, COO of Cooach Group.
“Over a short period, we have gone from 10 to almost 40 employees and consultants, which is necessary in order to meet our strong customer growth. Together with our customers, we continue to develop our offering for venture capital-financed growth companies. This growth and the responsibility we receive from our customers places high demands on us as an organization. It is therefore fantastic to be able to welcome Jörgen as COO at this stage. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Anna Lensmar-Friedman at Fairplace who helped us with this recruitment,”says Carl-Fredrik Morander, CEO of Cooach Group.
Jörgen took up his position on February 14, 2022 and is based in Stockholm.
