Lavén joins Ikano Bostad from her previous role as CEO of Besqab. She holds a Master of Science in Engineering from KTH Royal Institute of Technology and has over 30 years of experience in various positions within the real estate industry.

Her background includes serving as Head of Property Development at NCC for six years and working as Business Development Manager at Atrium Ljungberg for a decade.

“Carola has extensive experience in project development and portfolio management, and a leadership style that fits well with our corporate culture,” said Lars Thorsén, CEO of Ikano Group. “We see great opportunities ahead for Ikano Bostad, and I believe Carola, together with the Ikano Bostad team, has what it takes to develop and grow the business.”

Lavén expressed enthusiasm for her new role: “I look forward to taking on the position as CEO of Ikano Bostad. I am driven by working with properties and housing development that have an important impact on society. Working for a company with a long-term perspective and a commitment to developing a sustainable and competitive business is motivating. I am also attracted to working in an international corporate group with diverse expertise. Ikano’s corporate culture and core values are very much in line with my own.”

Thorsén welcomed Lavén and thanked the outgoing CEO: “We warmly welcome Carola to Ikano and would also like to thank Robert for his fantastic achievements over the years. Robert’s contributions have been of great importance for Ikano Bostad’s growth, and we are pleased to have Carola with us to continue the journey towards creating affordable and sustainable housing for the many people.”
