Anna-Karin is our Controller and based in Stockholm. She’s taking care that we have sufficient reporting in place and managing day-to-day finance-related matters.
I always loved business and economics at school. I asked a ton of questions and was so curious about it that my teacher encouraged me to work professionally in business analysis. I took her word and went for it. At university, I got really excited about business strategy and overall analysis but quickly realized that I needed to understand the accounting part to be good at it.

I started to work in auditing for two years and learned the basics of financial review and how to identify business risks. At some point, I decided to join a smaller company in an exciting environment where the decision lead time is shorter and where I get more involved in the overall business. I love to work in tight teams, set ambitious goals, and reach them together.

I was six when my dad took me to sailing camp and bribed me with dolls as I wanted to quit after the first day. It took me two years until I started loving it; at 15 I became a sailing teacher and every summer I love to sail away with friends in the archipelago. If my dad had listened to me as a six-year-old kid I wouldn’t have learned that sometimes good things take a while and that every now and then you need a little push to keep going forward.

With everything I do, I am very considerate and like to think things through before making decisions. I have been a vegetarian since I was 12 because of a leaflet I took home from a vegetarian restaurant making me realize the concept of the meat industry. I stuck to it ever since and never thought about it again. I love to spend the weekends in the forest with my dog, doing CrossFit, and attempting gymnastics such as handstands (how many years can it take to learn?!).
