I am responsible for Standard Chartered Nordics, and also CEO of the Sweden branch. I have been with the bank for almost five years and prior to that I have worked in Stockholm, Milan and London with other financial institutions. My passion for Standard Chartered comes from our ability to service our clients in some of the most challenging countries in the world, including helping our clients prosper by supporting our clients’ clients thorough export financings and local solutions, and also providing financial institutions with access to the same markets with sustainable investment or risk management solutions.

Head, Financial Institutions,
Nordics


Having enjoyed working at Standard Chartered for 11 years in London, Hong Kong and the Nordics, I have experienced very supportive career development in a global context. The values, culture and diversity align with my own moral compass, and I have been enthused and inspired by my colleagues in the FI and Corporate teams in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. It’s been exciting to work in both Group Head Office in London and our key market of Hong Kong to see the global network we bring to our clients.
