Misum Board members recognized on most powerful women in business rankings
International Women’s Day falls on 8 March annually, reminding us of the invaluable daily contributions women make to our societies. The sustainability focused careers of Misum board members highlighted in the Dagens Industri (Di) rankings are testament to this.
Our Chair, Viveka Hirdman-Ryrberg is the Head of Corporate Communication & Sustainability and member of the Executive Team at Investor AB. Investor firmly believes that integrating sustainability in the business model is a prerequisite for creating long-term value. Anna Ohlsson-Leijon has trailblazed in leading positions at Electrolux, PricewaterhouseCoopers and is a member of the Atlas Copco board. Eva Halvarsson joined AP2 in 2006 from the Swedish Ministry of Industry, where she was heading the Division for State-Owned Enterprises for several years. Presently she is on the board of Vasakronan, the Royal Swedish Opera, UN-PRI and WIN WIN Sustainability Award.
Misum is proud to celebrate and learn from the accomplishments of these inspirational and exceptional women.
Read the selection rationale from Dagens Industri below:
Viveka Hirdman-Ryrberg – Communications Director & Head of Sustainability, Investor
A key player in the Wallenberg sphere who, after almost 30 years at SEB bank, advanced to the powerful company Investor.
Anna Ohlsson-Leijon - Europa-vd, Electrolux
The European head of one of the world's largest home appliances manufacturers has a solid background in senior positions within the group, where she was previously CFO. Ohlsson-Leijon is tipped as a possible future CEO candidate at Electrolux, now that the incumbent has joined the board of Volvo.
Eva Halvarsson - CEO, Andra AP-fonden
Having actively recognized that long-term climate change risks threaten everyone's pensions, she recently decided to restructure the funds’ holdings in line with the Paris Agreement. Consequently, this means that 250 companies are leaving the fund's portfolio.
