The Council

The Council constitutes representatives from a broad spectrum within the membership and is elected at the Annual General Meeting, with its members serving three-year rotations. The Council appoints the Managing Director, who is responsible for the day-to-day operations and ensures continuous updates on issues of importance to the Chamber. Five committees have been established to support its work; the Executive, Finance, Nomination, Marketing and Industrial Forum Committees respectively. You can read more about our governance in the Articles of Association.

The Chairman is nominated by the Council and approved by the Members. The current Chairman, since 2017, is Jan Olsson, CEO Nordics at Deutsche Bank AG. The Swedish Ambassador to the United Kingdom, H.E. Torbjörn Sohlström is Honorary President of the Council.
