She has a degree in Civil Engineering from the Royal College of Technology in Stockholm, where she specialised in Building and Real Estate Economics.
Rickard also joins from Savills IM in Stockholm, where he has been since 2015 working as an analyst and most recently as a manager within the transactions team. He has a BA degree in Business management and Finance from the University of Westminster, as well as an MSc in Real Estate from Cass Business School.
