Niklas Zennström, Atomico’s CEO and Founding Partner, has been recommended by the Election Committee to become a new member of the Board of H&M, the world’s second largest global fashion retailer. We have long admired the way H&M has disrupted the traditional global fashion supply chain to become an amazing business with the largest market cap on the Stockholm stock exchange. An incredible story.

As we have said before, we believe passionately that great companies can come from anywhere. From its first store in Västerås, Sweden, H&M is now a truly iconic brand with customers around the world. If proof was needed that anyone with t‹he drive and talent can build a global business, irrespective of where they live, H&M is it.
