My professional aim has the last years been to do everything in my power to fight poverty and climate change through sustainable business. In my mind Summa Equity is the perfect company for doing exactly that. We use investments in sustainable companies as a tool to create a better world and at the same time deliver high returns. This is something I strongly believe in and am passionate about.
It feels like everything I have done in my career is a piece in the puzzel to take on the inspiring and challenging role as working Chairperson of Summa. Recently I worked as deputy CEO at Norrsken Foundation supporting the ecosystem of and investing in impact tech entrepreneurs. Previous to that I was CEO of Swedfund – the Swedish development finance institution. I have also worked as secretary-general of SOS Children’s Villages, deputy Secretary General for UNICEF Sweden, deputy CEO of Storåkers McCann and as a management consultant at McKinsey.
As working Principal, I have a fantastic opportunity together with the rest of the amazing Summa team to work with the strategic development of the company, advocate for the importance of channel more capital to sustainable investment and influence the rest of the industry as well as supporting the portfolio companies when needed.
Making sustainable investments here and now is the key to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. I hope that I will be able to tell my children 2030 that I was part of that development, “Yes, we did it! We eradicated extreme poverty and we saved the planet”.
