Kathryn Moore Baker, Chairwoman of Catena Media, comments:

“Catena Media has been through several growth stages in a short period of time. Robert Andersson’s assignment was to take the company through an IPO and later to introduce it to Nasdaq Stockholm’s main market, which he did with great results.
