Diplomat Communications strengthens its public affairs offering with the recruitment of Gunnar Caperius in the role as Director. Gunnar has over fifteen years of experience within politics, both in the Government Offices and in the Swedish parliament. Most recently, Gunnar held the position as the Center Party’s chief negotiator. Previously, he has worked for the Ministry of the Environment and the Prime Minister’s Office as well as team leader at the Center Party’s parliamentary office. Gunnar has also served as elected official in Stockholm municipality and as a consultant in the communications field. He holds a master’s degree in political science from Lund University and an MSc in political science from London School of Economics.
“In recent years, I have worked with almost all policy areas – budget negotiations, handling of the pandemic, labor market policy and housing. Throughout the years, I have primarily focused on the environment, climate, energy, and infrastructure in the Government Offices, the Swedish parliament but also within the EU as well as the UN. I am looking forward to joining Diplomat, a growing communications agency with a strong reputation and a leading offering on the Swedish market. My knowledge and experience from years in the political sphere can help companies and organizations in their work with sustainability, competitiveness, and development.”
