“I am pleased to welcome Petra to our management team where her focus will be on how to further scale our business,” said Better Collective Co-Founder and COO Christian Kirk Rasmussen.

There is no doubt that Petra’s expertise on how to drive growth and implement organisational change will become valuable to Better Collective.”
Zackrisson will begin her role as SVP of Growth from Better Collective’s Stockholm office in January 2023.

Scaling globally while supporting Better Collective in transforming its business to secure long-term sustainable performance are the type of challenges I excel at and am passionate about.
“As a senior leader I find it important to bring in the diversity angle in my work. I look forward to continue to raise awareness and make incremental changes so that Better Collective can become an even more diverse, profitable and sustainable business.”
