Jörgen Hasselström joined Multiconsult in 2017 and has an extensive leadership experience from the energy sector that includes various positions at ABB, Fortum, and most recently, at Sweco. He is a Swedish citizen born in 1972 and has a Doctorate degree in physics from Uppsala University, Sweden.

In developing countries, the availability of secure and environmentally friendly energy is important in fighting poverty and promoting increased equality. Multiconsult has valuable expertise, which is highly demanded both regionally and internationally. I look forward to further developing the Energy business at Multiconsult in line with the ambitions, says Jörgen Hasselström.
