Co-founder of Klarna, Niklas Adalberth, joins Board of Directors at Einride
Niklas Adalberth, Co-founder of Klarna and Founder of Norrsken Foundation, was voted in on June 22 to join the Board of Directors at freight tech company Einride.
Norrsken Foundation is one of the early investors in Einride, playing an important part in both Series A and Series B. Niklas Adalberth will be replacing Christian Lagerling, Co-founder of GP Bullhound, who’s stepping down from his seat at the board after over three years. The board assignment is Niklas’ first outside of Norrsken initiatives.
“We’ve supported Einride’s mission since day one and I’m incredibly excited to deepen our collaboration as Einride fights to transform road freight as we know it, making it more cost-efficient, safe, and sustainable. Einride isn’t simply updating old transport to fit a new purpose, but re-thinking what the future of freight will look like,” says Niklas Adalberth.
“With Niklas’ passion for sustainability and extensive knowledge of how to quickly scale a business globally, he’ll play a key role as we continue to capitalize on our strong momentum. We’re incredibly grateful for Christian’s invaluable support the last three years and will keep in close contact with him,” says Robert Falck, CEO of Einride.
Einride is a Swedish technology company that develops and provides freight mobility solutions based on electric and autonomous vehicles, leading the transition to sustainable transport. It was founded in 2016 by Robert Falck, Linnéa Kornehed, and Filip Lilja, and became the world’s first company to operate an autonomous, all-electric freight vehicle on a commercial route on a public road with its groundbreaking Pod vehicle. Today, Einride operates the largest fleet of electric trucks in Europe with major multinational partners, and recently set a speed record with the Pod at the Top Gear track in the U.K. For more information reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
