Kunskapsskolan becomes wholly owned by the Peje Emilsson family
The Peje Emilsson family has acquired the Wallenberg family holding Investor’s - through Patricia Industries - 38% ownership of Kunskapsskolan Education. Peje founded Kunskapsskolan in 1999 and has together with his family been the majority owner since.
Our cooperation with Investor has been excellent ever since they became co-owners in 2002. We have had the same ambition to create personalized education and innovative methods to provide education of the highest quality, says Peje Emilsson. When Patricia Industries now has taken the strategic decision that its portfolio of unlisted holdings will focus on wholly owned companies, it feels natural that we - as the majority shareholder - acquire their minority share.
It is very inspiring that our family now has the opportunity to take an even greater responsibility for Kunskapsskolan. Me and my brothers and Calle and Johan Emilsson look forward to working with all of our skilled and dedicated employees to continue developing our schools. Our pedagogical approach, the KED Program, combined with our global network gives us a unique opportunity to empower our students to take on tomorrow's challenges, says Cecilia Carnefeldt, President and CEO of Kunskapsskolan Education.
