About Me

Since February 2013 I live together with my wife Annalena and our daughter Amanda in Graz, Austria after some 2 years in Sandviken, Sweden prior to our 2 years in Shanghai, China. Living and working in China was a very good experience for both Annalena and myself since we like Asia a lot, we also appreciated to give Amanda the opportunity to run in our backyard with fresh air and close to nature in Sandviken. When the opportunity came up to move to Austria in 2013 we took it since both Annalena and myself wanted to spend some time living and working abroad again after our experience in China. Austria was the perfect opportunity to have both close to nature not to far away from our relatives in Sweden.

During my time with Sandvik, where I started to work after finishing my studies 2000, I have had the opportunity to work in various positions such as financial manager, project manager and with business control. To work in both different positions and parts of the Sandvik organization have given me a good understanding of the complexities within a multinational company and also some experience in working and living in different countries.  

In the future I am looking forward to use my knowledge contributing to improved operations in a global company. The most important ingredients in my work environment are dedicated and professional co-workers, enjoying to be part of a team, managers scoring high in the coaching area and international contacts since I have found that this usually helps me to see things from a different perspective and perform better.  

If you have further questions and/or find me interesting for the opening in your company, please do not hesitate to contact me for a meeting.
