Arthur D. Little (ADL, est. 1886), the global management consultancy linking strategy, innovation and transformation in technology-intensive industries, today announced the appointment of Petter Kilefors as Managing Partner and CEO of ADL in the Nordic. The mission for Petter will be to lead ADL Nordic towards its growth strategy. Petter will in his new role report directly to the global Chairman of the Board and President Ignacio Garcia-Alves.

Commenting on his appointment, Petter said, “Arthur D. Little has a first-class, market-leading team working with local and multi-national clients in private and public sector. I am taking over at an exciting time. Businesses in the Nordics are increasingly looking for quality advisors who master the combination of strategic and innovative issues for competitiveness, growth and efficiency.”

After joining ADL in 1997 Petter was promoted partner in record time, at the age of 28 he was the youngest partner ever. He has been one of ADL's most sought for advisors in a variety of complex issues and sectors. Early on, Petter was recognized by business weekly Veckans Affärer’s at the list of young people in power positions and has held the role of Global Practice Leader for ADL’s Strategy & Organization Practice with operations in 25 countries for many years.

Bo Lenerius adds, "Petter is an exceptional advisor with deep knowledge of the investment environment, strategy and innovation issues and corporate governance. I look forward to continued cooperation, developing the firm for our clients' best and strengthen our position in Gothenburg, which is my base."

Petter has a Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration from the Stockholm School of Economics and Rotterdam School of Management.
