Moves are afoot at Sweden’s Viken Group. Anna Silvesjö – CFO of Tillberg Design of Sweden – has joined as CFO to work alongside current CEO Stefan R. Nilsson. Antonio Romano – co-founder and business director at Italian design studio Hot Lab – has been appointed commercial director.

Nilsson says he’s “pleased to welcome experienced CFO Anna Silvesjö to the team, and I am excited to work alongside Hot Lab’s Antonio Romano as the group’s new commercial director, who will no doubt prove a huge asset thanks to his creative vision, understanding of design, and considerable experience in the yacht and superyacht sector.”

“We established the Viken Group in early 2022 to offer our current and future clients in the cruise and yacht industries a customised, cost-efficient and streamlined service encompassing everything from naval architecture and design to project management,” says Nilsson. “The addition of Thalia Marine and Hot Lab to the group reinforced our determination to offer a best-of-the-best service with a view to sustainability in the marine sector.”

Viken Group was designed to bring together design and project management companies in the marine sector who share similar beliefs and passions both for the development of design and the evolution of the sector toward more sustainable propositions.

The group currently comprises Tillberg Design of Sweden and Italian companies Thalia Marine and Hot Lab and is majority owned by Swedish investment company AB Max Sievert.

Sievert is a Swedish long-term owner who is said to focus on investments in profitable Swedish and Nordic companies that share an ethical and sustainable approach to business. Viken Group is currently Sievert’s sole investment in the maritime sector.
