It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our office manager and friend, Catharina Migell, after a short period of illness.
Catharina founded Urbanista together with Klara Jonsson in 2016. With her solid managerial experience, sense of order and ability to see each employee’s needs, she has given the group stability and direction. She has played a key role in the development of Urbanista’s inclusive corporate culture and has strongly contributed to developing the company to its current form and market position.
The firm conviction that cities can become better places for people guided Catharina throughout her career. She worked on complex projects, often in the early stages of the urban development process and usually with an emphasis on transport and mobility. Her solid technical knowledge was complemented by many years of practical experience. We, and our colleagues in the industry, have lost an exceptionally competent and committed colleague and friend.
Urbanista will honour Catharina’s legacy by continuing to work for better cities, with a focus on increased collaboration and greater understanding between actors in the complex urban development process. Our CEO Klara Jonsson continues to run the business with the support of our competent employees.
