Hans Gesteby Vindeland has a background as a political advisor for the Social Democrats, including the current Minister for Enterprise and Innovation, Mikael Damberg.

Before Diplomat, he was the Sweden Manager of Reach for Change, a non-profit organization helping social entrepreneurs to develop innovations that create a better world for children.

– Diplomat Communications is an agency with a big heart, clear values and very high ambitions, and I look forward to geting involved and developing the business. Within my area, Public Affairs, we see how radical changes are taking place, where digitalisation and new methods for policy development change both the election campaign and the way companies and organizations work. Through Diplomat, I want to be a part in this development, says Hans Gesteby Vindeland.

– Hans Gesteby Vindeland has an extensive experience from several of the areas where our customers are operating, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the team. We are growing quickly within Public Affairs, and are now entering an intensive period of Almedalen and the election, says Sonja Rasin, CEO of Diplomat Communications AB.
