Celebrating recent promotions

We have promoted some exceptional talents, instrumental to recent wins.

When looking at the recent promotions at Altor, it is striking how this team of talent represents the very essence of our community of challengers and change makers. A group representing different backgrounds and experiences, bringing their unique qualities to the table. They are ambitious, hardworking but at the same time just amazingly warm colleagues to have around. And they have all delivered some outstanding results in the companies they partner with.
