Håkan Winberg is presented Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK’s Extraordinary Member Award 2020
4 December 2020
The SCC is pleased to announce that Håkan Winberg is presented the Extraordinary Member Award 2020, for his “many years of service within the Council, its Executive, Finance and Nomination Committees, and his generous donations behind the Lund University Scholarship to the SCC for a number of years. In addition, he continues to support and sponsor the events programme, and is continually a mentor to its young professionals”.
The award is by tradition presented during a ceremony at the SCC’s Annual Christmas Luncheon, but as this year's luncheon very regrettably had to be cancelled, Håkan will be honoured at the Annual Christmas Luncheon 2021, on 3 December.
With more than 20 years as CFO and later Vice President at Securitas, Håkan has extensive experience from the security industry. He has served as Vice President of Capio, one of Europe's leading healthcare companies, and is the author of the book Approximately Right.
Håkan was elected to the SCC Council in 2005 and was later made Honorary Vice President for his continuous support of the Swedish-British business community.
The Extraordinary Member Award is presented annually to formally acknowledge and recognise individual support and contribution to the Chamber’s mission and work by Members of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK. Håkan is the third recipient of the award, following Count Bertil Bernadotte in 2019 and Dr Anders Wall who received the first award in 2018.
