Published Mar 18, 2021

EECS Head of Administration Christina Zander will soon start a new position at the Swedish Defence University.

Christina Zander, Head of Administration, has been recruited to the position as University Director (högskoledirektör) at the Swedish Defence University (Försvarshögskolan) and will leave EECS in April.

“KTH has been a fantastic employer, and I have learned so much during my eight years here, but it is time for me to move on. The school merger was a true challenge, and I’m deeply impressed by both the adaptability and capacity everyone at the professional support displayed. They really rose to the occasion. I regret not being able to work more with Sonja, but I’m looking forward to following her work and leadership from across the road. My office will be on Drottning Kristinas väg 37 so I won't be that far away. ”

Comment from the management team

Sonja Berlijn, EECS' Head of School

“First of all, we would like to thank Christina very much for her enormous engagement in EECS. She has performed a fantastic job in the merger a number of years ago and is still doing a tremendous job. So it is with mixed feelings we received the news. We will miss her as head of administration at our school, and also as a positive, enthusiastic colleague. At the same time we recognize that this is a once in a life time opportunity for her. We congratulate both her and the Swedish Defence University!”

 “We have already started the process of recruiting a new head of administration. This will take some time of course, and in the meantime, we will appoint an acting head of administration.”

More updates about the recruitment process and the acting head of administration will be posted during March/April.
