“Today’s appointments are truly a testament to the diversity and strength of the Swedish-British business community. The elected board members are all esteemed and engaged business professionals representing a variety of sectors, complementing the board’s already strong composition," says Jan Olsson, Chairman of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce. "These board members represent employers of ca. 25,000 employees in the UK, which is fantastic. We look forward to working with all of them to continue establishing the Chamber as the ultimate platform for the Swedish-British community.” 

The AGM saw Suzanne Bolinder (Consido), Marielle Lindgren (Google) and Lars Olsson (Stena Line) retire as members of the Council.
