The Annual General Meeting of our Club took place on 12th March. We discussed the activities performed by the Club in 2016, presented the financial accounts, voted on certain changes to the Club’s statutes and elected a new Board. Thanks to the Embassy of Lithuania for opening their doors for our meeting.
It is our pleasure to welcome Jelena Angelis as a new Chairwoman!
Our new Board includes professionals from different fields:
Dovydas Čepelė, Head of Region at Cranbalt, advisor for sales and business strategy in construction market;
Justinas Pagirys, Commercial Attaché of Lithuania in Sweden, focused on investment promotion and helping Lithuanian companies enter the Swedish market. He is trained in public policy and earlier was in charge of business development at Invest Lithuania;
Ruta Smertinienė, Swedbank, the former leader of the Club and its main founding partner who strongly believes that especially in the age of information technology clubs like ours are allowing people to meet physically, share experiences, develop trust and have fun;
Vita Garte, a branding specialist and web designer, running her own business and living in Sweden since 1997;
Jelena Angelis, public policy consultant in the fields of innovation, research and higher education; expert of the European Commission and Sweden’s innovation agency Vinnova.
Thanks go to the previous Board members – Dainius Jurevičius, Donatas Skidzevičius, Regina Molina and Martinas Urbelionis – for their valuable contributions for the running and developing the Club. While continuing the work of the previous Board and implementing some of the already planned events, we are now diving into planning our further activities.
Thank you for putting your trust in us. Together we will make our community stronger, create new business opportunities and advertise Lithuania and Sweden. If you have any ideas or feedback, please contact us.
