Asked about Wiz-Team and her motivation to get involved, Anna Hellman said:
“Wiz-Team has had a fantastic journey so far and I very much respect and trust the company’s leadership. Johan and Tim are great guys and you can feel the team spirit they have built across the company! All of them understand that you have to be agile and flexible to cater for challenges and change and they always put the customer first.”
Wiz Team Founder and CEO Johann Woringer said: “With her extensive organisational and event experience, leadership skills, entrepreneurial spirit, and large network of colleagues throughout the sports industry and beyond, Anna today has created links between sport, academia, the corporate and public sectors. A natural connector and always a true professional, she has helped these different sectors work together to make sport a catalyst for social, educational, economic, and physical development – something that is also strongly embedded in Wiz-Team’s spirit.”
