At a board meeting Katarina Berg, Chief Human Resources Officer at Spotify, was unanimously appointed to the Sqore Board of Directors.
“Spotify started as a challenger with the mission to give people access to all the music they want, all the time. Sqore’s vision is to break the bias barrier in recruitment, giving candidates equal access to opportunities,” says Katarina Berg. “To be able to work with organizations that have a strong value base is personally rewarding, but I believe that it is also a recipe for commercial success. I truly look forward to being part of the Board of Directors at Sqore.”
Founded in 2010 by four graduates from Stockholm School of Economics and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sqore operates mainly out of its headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden. It employs more than 60 staff with 20 different nationalities in Stockholm and Sofia, Bulgaria. In 2015 venture capitalists Northzone invested 3 million euros, and in 2016 the owners raised an additional 3 million euros.
“We are excited to welcome Katarina to the board. In 2017 we will take the next step on our journey towards leadership in the digitalised recruitment sector. Being able to tap into Katarina´s experience from working in a traditional sector, as a challenger will be very valuable for us.” says Niklas Jungegård, CEO at Sqore.
