Summary: Joined Heidrick & Struggles to lead the Aviation, Aerospace and Defence practice in Asia. Since Aug 2007 I also lead the Europe and Middle East practice. Actively involved in the industrial, transportation and supply chain sectors I also lead the Industrial Practice in Asia-Pacific. At Heidrick I have placed C-Level executives - across Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East - and their direct reports - line and functional; in Airlines - LCC's, Full Service Carriers and Regional/Commuter operators - and at MRO's, OEM's and Industry service providers. As well as senior supply chain and industrial positions throughout the region. Prior to joining Heidrick & Struggles, I was VP Commercial Asia Pacific for Honeywell Aerospace. I am a seasoned marketing and sales professional with over 20 years experience in Asia-Pacific - based in Jakarta, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore - promoting aviation related products (including aircraft) and services for large aerospace companies such as Saab Aircraft, Rockwell Collins and Cathay Pacific. With a wealth of experience across Asia Pacific I have managed and designed logistics and sales management processes, identified and closed gaps in opportunities developed sales campaigns that has returned significant value and devised asset management strategies. Accomplishments include the management of European and American supplier relationships to develop new markets and identify new business opportunities and markets. I have managed Asian client relationships to grow business for multi disciplinary product ranges - hardware, software and integrated solutions - and have re-focused business emphasis to match changed market environment - increased competition and revised purchasing criteria. Born in Sweden, I studied mechanical engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden and earned an MBA from European University in Jakarta and Brussels, Belgium and is a certified Six Sigma Black Belt.
