Ulla Hemmi appointed Country Manager for OpusCapita Sweden
August 12, 2014
OpusCapita, a provider of automated financial management processes, is reinforcing its team in Sweden by appointing Ulla Hemmi as Country Manager with effect from 1 September. Her appointment is part of OpusCapita’s strategy to reinforce its presence in the Swedish market. Ulla previously worked for her own company, AlteLate Consulting, and has extensive experience in outsourcing in both supplier and customer management. Her predecessor, Per Åberg, will continue as Director, M&A.
Ulla Hemmi has held various management positions in the rapidly growing and continually evolving IT sector during the past 25 years, in both in Sweden and abroad. She was previously at AlteLate Consulting, where she provided clients with interim management, coaching and outsourcing services. Her clients were major listed international companies. She has also been Head of Financials at Aditro, and has worked for several years at IBM as Director of its Swedish outsourcing business and as Networking Connectivity Services Leader at its headquarters for north-eastern Europe in Switzerland. She has a business degree from the University of Uppsala.
“Ulla has vast experience of developing, motivating and inspiring teams to manage and enable change, increasing sales, growth and profits. She has very valuable experience of change management, sales leadership and processes and project management in rapidly changing environments, which fits well with OpusCapita’s strategy of both expanding its services and growing its market share in Sweden. I am eagerly awaiting the opportunity to work with her to expand OpusCapita’s presence on the Swedish market,” says Heikki Länsisyrjä, CEO of OpusCapita Group.
More and more companies want greater control over their costs and revenues and hence need effective financial management. With the help of modern financial processes, the right support and a suitable solution, they can also reduce risks, which saves both time and money.
“OpusCapita has an attractive and modern offering, providing clear improvements in productivity through effective and purposeful financial management, cost and revenue control, invoice processing, and efficient business processes and delivery solutions. I expect to contribute to OpusCapita’s continued success,” says Ulla Hemmi, OpusCapita’s incoming Country Manager in Sweden.
OpusCapita provides financial process automation – either outsourced or as a service – for more than 10,000 customers in over 50 countries. The company operates in nine European countries, employing 2,100 professionals. In 2013, net sales totaled EUR 263 million.
