Malin Omberg was named deputy CEO at occupational pension provider AMF, Stockholm, a spokesman confirmed.
The position has been vacant since last autumn, when AMF's former deputy CEO, Aino Bunge, was appointed deputy governor of the Sweden's central bank, Riksbanken.
Ms. Omberg, who was AMF's chief of staff since October 2022, will remain in the role in addition to becoming deputy CEO.
"Malin has a long and solid experience and is currently responsible for a number of central functions within AMF, such as finance, actuarial operations, HR and sustainability. Her breadth, competence and good insight into AMF's various business areas means that she is well suited to step into my place if necessary," Johan Sidenmark, CEO of AMF, said in a news release.
AMF had 765 billion Swedish kronor ($73.6 billion) in assets under management as of March 31.
