April 25, 2016

DIAKRIT is pleased to announce the hiring of Marcus Surtén as Sales Manager – Sweden. Marcus has an extensive professional background with a number of well-known companies, such as Bonnier Media Group and Schibsted Media Group. DIAKRIT looks forward to having him drive the rapid growth that the company is currently experiencing and has planned for the coming years.

DIAKRIT’s Vice President & Head of Nordic Sales, Pontus Lindholm, says: “Marcus’ extensive experience, both as a successful sales entrepreneur and as a colleague in the industry, together with his solid reputation in the marketplace, is sure to make a powerful contribution to our continuing growth in Sweden. We’re really pleased he has joined us”.

Until recently, Marcus established and successfully managed the real estate vertical in Blocket.se, the number one marketplace/classified site in Sweden. Corresponding to DIAKRIT’s mission, Marcus says his goal at Blocket.se was to transform the real estate industry from offline to online.

I look forward to join a team that has been revolutionizing the real estate industry since 2001. As a firm believer in the digital transformation that is taking place in several industries today, I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to be on the frontline of this transformation, as part of DIAKRIT,” Marcus says.

Marcus is an expert of the Swedish media and marketplace with over 11 years of senior sales and business development experience across a variety of media.

I’ve been fascinated by the real estate industry ever since I first started working with real estate clients. They have a strong driving force and entrepreneurial mindset that has always inspired me in my business development,” Marcus says.

Marcus’ interest grew bigger after he run into DIAKRIT on several occasions in recent years and learned more about their mission to “revolutionize the real estate industry”, convinced that one of the biggest financial decisions in people’s lives can be made easier, more informed and more engaging.

I was very impressed of how DIAKRIT in a short amount of time managed to expand internationally with a series of innovative product releases, and on top of that, they recently joined News Corp, one of the world’s largest media and information services. I knew then that their journey was just about to take off, and that I have to be onboard,” Marcus says.
