Per-Anders Östby is a seasoned executive with +25 years experience of international business development and sales. He holds an MBA from Henley Business School, UK. Following 8 years within a group of companies owned by his parents he embarked on a corporate career working for both Swedish, French and American companies in a variety of industries such as Cancer Diagnostics, Industrial microbiology and Material testing. In recent years Per-Anders has held several CEO roles for companies in Sweden where he gained experience from turn-around situations, private-equity buy outs and entrepreneurial start-ups. Per-Anders is Chairman of the Board of CJP Ventures AB, BEAM AB and Member of the Board of Aecor Solutions AB.
“Getting Per Anders onboard really means a lot for Velove. We are now scaling up fast and will benefit massively from Per-Anders experience in running and growing businesses”, says Johan Erlandsson, co-founder and majority owner.
”When I see the drive and commitment from the co-founders in contributing to a better world I can’t help but being excited to join the talented team of Velove as Chairman of the Board. Given the market opportunity ahead of us I’m confident it will be an exciting journey with a lot of fun.”, says Per-Anders Östby.
In 2020, we changed business model to become a vertically integrated last mile delivery company. How has it worked out?
To simplify the shift from van based to e-cargobike based last mile delivery, Velove now introduces Velovers: trained and certified e-cargobike couriers.
