Åkerlund said of her appointment: “I’m super excited to have joined Triggy. I have always been impressed with entrepreneurs and love innovative tech products that simplifies for the client. The future journey of Triggy expanding into the US, adding more sports and building the Triggy brand really appeals to me.
“Triggy has a great team whom I think can be made even stronger by focusing on a common goal and clear priorities which will be my focus going forward.”
