CFO as a Service, Scalex Talent Bank

“Listen to all the voices in the room. Because sometimes, the strongest and best advice is delivered in a whisper, not in a shout.”

I have some 20 years of experience as a CFO in large multinational companies including Alfa Laval, AstraZeneca andB&B Tools. In these positions I ran complex finance functions and had responsibility for large teams. I have also held financial consulting roles at KPMG and PwC. My work has taken me to various places and I lived and worked in Thailand, USA, England, France, the Netherlands and Sweden. After moving back to Sweden a decade ago, I took on the role of CFO for the Science Park Peak Region Sweden. That led me into the world of small businesses. Something I loved working with. Today i work as an independent consultant focused on helping smaller, fast-growth companies establish a top-of-the-line financial function as the“Digital CFO”. This involves (remotely) working alongside the company’s CEO and other leaders to help them achieve their strategic goals. Currently I work mostly as digital CFO and share the time between our houses in Tärnaby and Spain.
