AUTHOR: Inavate

Lab.gruppen hopes to push the company, including subsidiary Lake, into a new era with the appointment of Jon Alkhagen as managing director.

Alkhagen joined the Swedish pro-audio manufacturer last month and has a background in high-end technology manufacturing.

He graduated with an M.Sc. in Engineering Physics from Uppsala University in 1996 and has worked at a number of telecommunications companies including Allgon where he managed research and development activities.

Alkhagen said: “While we have a huge opportunity and improvement potential in our operations, it is clear to me that we have the individuals and the right knowledge in place to allow Lab.gruppen and Lake to grow into true market leaders that are both highly profitable and streamlined.”

Anders Fauerskov, CEO of parent company TC Group, welcomed the appointment and said Alkhagen would provide leadership and vision that would be instrumental to ongoing success of the brands.

Alkhage is based at the company’s headquarters in Kungsbacka, Sweden.
