In the spotlight with
Catarina Ihre

What is your professional background?

I have spent most of my professional life within equity analysis, on both sides of the table. For 15 years, I was an equity analyst at different domestic and international investment banks. Then I spent some 10 years as Head of Investor Relations for three Swedish large-cap listed companies, responsible for all communication towards investors, analysts and the financial media, as well as sustainability and other issues.

How do you think your competence will create value to the company and the board?

I have solid experience in communication towards the financial markets, and I maintain continuous communication with authorities working within regulations and stock exchange rules. I am also dedicated regarding ‘numbers and excel files’! In other words, I spend a lot of time going through financial reports and enjoy the opportunity to discuss financials with senior management.

What do you find most interesting about Brighter?

It is an exciting company with a business model that is contributing to a good cause, developing a different way of treating people with diabetes and other chronic diseases. It’s important to me personally, because I want to spend my time where I can make a positive difference.
