Board Member, Mentor Program
Karl Prytz is currently CEO and Partner in Animail – the largest online pet store in the Nordic region. Prior to that, Karl was Marketing and Communications Manager at Klarna. He has also worked with starting and running business areas in digital advertising revenue at Bonnier.
During his time at SSE, Karl was active in the Student Union, especially in the Program Committee. He fondly remembers all the hours he spent with inspiring people in the Student Union premises.
“My single best memory from the Student Union is probably the summer party that we organized the year I was on the board of the Program Committee, when Timbuktu played in the courtyard. But I also learned at SSE how much one always has left to learn – which particularly becomes clearer when you surround yourself with so many driven and committed people. In addition, of course, to all the valuable knowledge that researchers and business world representatives shared during the courses.
What is your reason for being on the Board of the SSE Alumni Club?
“I spent a great deal of time being active in the Student Union in several committees and many years on the council. The Student Union as well as the school have given me so much, and this is partly my way of giving back. It’s also a great way to keep up with inspiring people – both on the Board and during the activities and events we organize!"
Karl was elected to the Board of the SSE Alumni Club in 2013 and works with the new mentor program.
"I focus mainly on the SSE Alumni Club mentor program and on the relationship with our mentees, which is an issue I am passionate about after receiving enormous help for seven years from my mentor: in career decisions, in the first stages of being a manager and, not least, as a general sounding board for all questions large and small, inside and outside the framework of my job.”
