What did you do before you joined Semper / Hero?
I was a Pharmaceutical Sales Rep at SmithKlineBeecham, Vancouver, Canada.
How would you describe your current role?
My responsibilities are to shift focus from Sweden to Nordic, and to continue our expansion as the clear Nordic leader. I am establishing a synchronised Nordic Communication Plan including digital communication and ensuring that we launch products from the perspective of a Nordic pipeline.
What do you appreciate most about Semper / Hero?
I’m juggling family life and career, so I’m appreciative of the flexibility Semper shows for its employees that are also parents of young children.
What accomplishments are you particularly proud of?
The recent successful launch of Semper’s delicious Gluten-Free Brownies and one of my first projects. I landed a Caritas tender for a relief shipment of 700 tons of välling that I packed into 40 sea containers, and shipped in a convoy from the Semper factory in Götene to the Red Cross in Algiers.
What do you do for fun?
I love planning events with a focus on fun, so I’m responsible for the Children’s Activities of the Canadian Club. My events for expat kids focus on Canadian traditions.
