Management

albamy group was established by Stephanie Hellstedt and Dan Söderholm in 2013. Together, the two partners have more than 25 years of experience in the international meeting and hospitality industry. After many years in large corporate structures, they set out to create their own company delivering truly tailor-made solutions and meeting the highest quality standards for their clients at all times.

Stephanie Hellstedt

Managing Partner

Of Swedish nationality, Stephanie grew up in Stockholm and later Berlin. She found her passion for the hospitality and meeting industry early in life and kicked off this career with an international hospitality management school in Switzerland. After a few stops within the hotel industry, she ended up in the meeting planning world. Here she spent 15 years in one of the largest international meeting management companies, combining her passion for meeting planning with her passion for travelling. The highlight of these 15 years was to be part of the organizing team of the International AIDS Conference with around 30’000 delegates, which meant spending over a year in South Africa as well as one year as Conference Director in Bangkok with full responsibility for meeting planning.
