At a meeting on Thursday 14 June, the Board of Form/Design Center decided to appoint Dorte Bo Bojesen as the new CEO of Form/Design Center. Dorte Bo Bojesen will take up the post on 10 September 2018 and succeeds Birgitta Ramdell, who is retiring.

Dorte Bo Bojesen comes from a background in the design industry and academia. She has lived and worked in Sweden for the past 18 years, most recently as head of design at the textile company Svensson (AB Ludvig Svensson). She has previously been the director of studies at the Swedish School of Textiles at the University of Borås and at the School of Design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.

– It is with great pleasure that the Board can announce today that Dorte Bo Bojesen will become the new CEO of Form/Design Center. Dorte has well-documented leadership experience and is used to working in a results-oriented way and with a strategic focus –  qualities that the organisation with its new government mandate has sought. I am convinced that Dorte, with her strong roots in the subject area and her experience and contacts within both industry and academia, is the right woman at the helm to ensure the continued development of Form/Design Center, commented Eva Engquist, Chairman of the Board of Form/Design Center.

– I am grateful for the Board’s trust and I look forward to working together with Form/Design Center’s staff and partners in the region and internationally to continue the exciting development of the Center’s operations, Dorte Bo Bojesen commented.
