Head of Project Management
"I enjoy being able to improve things."

As a child, what career did you aspire to?

I wanted to be a meteorologist for a long time. I thought it would be fascinating to give people information while being on television and pointing to the weather charts. However, I was also interested in many other things. In the end, I chose industrial economics and engineer science.

What brought you to ABB?

As a student in Sweden, I completed an internship in the semester break at ABB Low Voltage Motors. After I finished the internship, I put my ABB network to use and secured a second internship in Marketing and Sales, in Switzerland. After that, I decided to finish my studies at the ETH in Management, Technology and Economics (MTEC) and shortly after that, I was offered full-time employment as a project manager of High Voltage.

What are your duties at ABB?

As Head of Project Management, I lead a team. My main task is to lead and motivate my colleagues in order to get the best results for our projects. That means that we are always looking for ways to optimize our internal processes and ensure that we have access to the necessary tools – all in order to be able to support our customers in the best possible way. Having a clear target is the best way to go about it. At the moment, I am working on the Networking-Capital-Optimization in our projects. I enjoy being able to improve things.

What do you do in your free time?

I love travelling and do a lot of sport. I ride a racing bike and enjoy sailing on the Eastern coast of Sweden. I also love kayaking – the best place for that is Iceland.
