Petter Brunnberg new Head of Media Relations at SEB

SEB has appointed Petter Brunnberg as new Head of Media Relations & External Communication. He will succeed Niklas Magnusson, who has decided to join SEB’s Public Affairs team and take on the role of Acting Head of Public Affairs. The changes are effective 1 September.

Petter Brunnberg joins SEB from Nordea, where he most recently held the position as Head of Communication Sweden. Petter Brunnberg’s previous roles include among others Group Press Officer and ESG analyst at Nordea and Head of Communication at ABG Sundal Collier.

“I am very pleased to welcome Petter Brunnberg to SEB. After many years in the financial sector, he brings with him sector expertise and a solid track record in communications and media relations. I would also like to extend a big and heartfelt thank you to Niklas Magnusson for his work and contributions during the past few years. He has developed our external communication and media relations in an exemplary manner,” says Ulrika Areskog Lilja, Head of Brand, Marketing & Communications at SEB.

Niklas Magnusson has since early 2020 handled media relations and external communication at SEB, both as Group Press Officer and Head of Media Relations & External Communication. Niklas Magnusson will initially take on the role as Acting Head of Public Affairs, as Marcus Johansson goes on parental leave, and then join the Public Affairs team as Public Affairs Officer.

“I am very proud of the accomplishments we have achieved in the press and communication teams at SEB in the past few years and am very grateful to all my colleagues for making it such a rewarding and inspiring time. After four and half years working with media relations and external communication at SEB, I feel the time has come for a new challenge and am very excited to join the Public Affairs team. I am very glad that Petter Brunnberg has decided to join SEB and want to extend a warm welcome to him. I look forward to working closely with the Media Relations & External Communication team also in my new role,” says Niklas Magnusson.
