BACKGROUND:
I have been active within Executive Search since 2012 and have had the privilege to help clients in many different industries with leadership and specialist assignments. The last years work have been in an international context. Before starting with Executive Search I worked many years as a consultant within Communication and Marketing with clients ranging from, among other sectors, life/science, IT and retail. From 2006 to 2010 I was CIO for a midsized company in the Veterinary field. My interest in leadership development deepened at that time.

AS A PERSON:
Curious and with a genuine interest in people. I focus on the future and I am driven by development – both my own and others. Building strong teams who jointly solve assignments is important to me. I firmly believe in the team’s intrinsic power.

WHY CONSULTANT IN AIMS INTERNATIONAL?
To be able to help clients no matter where they need to recruit and having local expertise in many countries just a phone call away is beneficial to both our clients and myself. The international perspectives boost the creativity to develop our services to best help our customers now and in the future. Having Talent Management as a complementary service gives the client a clear strength in their leadership development. WE FIND&GROW YOUR LEADERS.

THOUGHTS ABOUT CLIENTS AND CANDIDATES:
Getting the feedback from both the client and the candidate that the recruitment is a “excellent match” gives me a great satisfaction. We invest time and hard work to understand the business as well as the company culture in which the candidate is going to work. There are no shortcuts to success in our assignments. We manage a high level of trust from both parties in our profession and I have a deep respect for that fact.

INTERESTS:
My two most important hobbies are music and photography. I also enjoy traveling, always with a camera at hand. Happy to be both in big cities and in the Swedish archipelago.
