Theo Lindqvist

Theo attended Chalmers University of Technology where he completed a Masters of Engineering degree. He later went to INSEAD for his MBA.  He worked for over 10 years as a consultant to industry and Private Equity owned companies- with a focus on Operations. He then moved to work on the Client side and worked as Group Chief Purchasing Officer at Haldex, and moved to Shanghai for 4 years.


Throughout his life, Theo has had a private passion for art.  He started this hobby through collecting for personal purposes, and then began to help friends and close acquaintances who shared a similar passion and interest.


Theo decided to  focus on his passion for art full time when he returned back to Stockholm from China, and he founded Lindqvist Contemporary in 2009.


Theo’s experience in the consulting and corporate world gives him a strong platform to act as a bridge between his clients and the art world.
