Intera Partners expands in Sweden and strengthens technology sector capabilities

Intera Partners, a private equity firm focused on the growth and internationalisation of small and medium sized companies, has started operations in Sweden by opening a branch in Stockholm. Cecilia Waldehorn has joined Intera as a Partner based in Intera’s Stockholm office. Additionally, Andreas Holmberg has joined Intera’s team in Helsinki as a Partner to further strengthen Intera’s expertise in the technology and service sector investments. 

Intera’s team has for more than a decade helped its portfolio companies grow in the Nordics, and most of Intera’s portfolio companies have expanded internationally during Intera’s ownership. For example, Kamux, Midagon, PHM, Rantalainen, Renta, Roima and Sitowise have successfully expanded their business to Sweden and beyond together with Intera. The office in Stockholm further strengthens Intera’s capabilities to help companies grow across the Nordics. 

“Recruiting a Sweden-based Partner and opening an office in Stockholm is a natural next step for Intera. With Cecilia joining the team, our ability to invest in Swedish companies and to support our portfolio companies grow in the Nordics is further strengthened”, says Intera’s Partner Christoffer Zilliacus. 

Cecilia Waldehorn has since 2015 worked in Nordic lower mid-market private equity, most recently at Procuritas. Cecilia works as an integral part of Intera’s team, focusing on both new investment opportunities and on supporting the internationalisation of Intera’s existing investments. 

”I am excited to start developing Intera’s new operations in Sweden together with the team. Intera’s growth-focused investment strategy and achievements have impressed me, and I look forward to building a strong presence in Sweden”, Cecilia says. 

Andreas Holmberg joins Intera’s team in Helsinki from Permira, a global private equity firm, where he spent the last ten years focusing on the Nordic region and the technology sector. 

“I am inspired by Intera’s team and track record, and by the opportunity to leverage this established platform to tap into the exciting technology-driven opportunities in the Nordics”, Andreas comments. 

”Cecilia and Andreas are highly valuable additions to our team and make us an even stronger partner to Nordic entrepreneurs looking to grow and develop their businesses”, says Intera’s Managing Partner Juhana Kallio.
