EDITOR IN CHIEF OF FINANSTIDNINGEN MOVES ON Modern Times Group MTG AB, the international media group, today announced that Johan Hakelius, Editor-in-Chief of Finanstidningen, has decided to move on to new challenges. Hakelius has been responsible for developing an independent-minded editorial page and has presided over a period of continuous growth at Finanstidningen, Sweden's fastest growing business newspaper. Hans-Holger Albrecht, President and CEO of MTG, commented: "I am sorry to see Johan go, and appreciate the work effort he has done for Finanstidningen, but I understand his reasons and respect them. Our ambition is to continue to work together with Johan in the future on other MTG projects." Johan Hakelius commented: "It has been fun and I am happy that my two and a half years at Finanstidningen, including two years as Editor-in- Chief, have been so well received. It is hard to know when to leave a job that is so rewarding, but I have been writing editorials for almost ten years now and I feel that it is time to try something different. Finanstidningen will undoubtedly continue its successful development." "We are pleased with the results of the latest independent readership survey, which showed a 4% growth in Finanstidningen's readership," Hans- Holger Albrecht commented further. "The recent acquisition of the weekly business paper 'Vision' will enable us to present an even better offering in future."
