With her experience in national and international operating companies, she has been leading the company through some challenging years due to the Coronavirus. With a strong drive and can-do mentality, she leads the business in Amsterdam where customer focus and optimized business processes play an important role.



“Participating in the Women Business Leadership program, provided by Malin via the Swedish Chamber, has been a great help in my daily live, both private and business wise! It has provided me with tips & tricks to be better aware of why I do things the way you do them, and if needed how I might be able change/improve. The term “ant-steps” is one that often comes to my mind. I really recommend you to join a session!

If you are not able to do all four, one is more than not at all! But I’m sure if you go for one you will most likely want to join all sessions. I always leave these session with such a positive boosted feeling.”

Pernilla Guitink-Svensson, Process Improvement Professional at ASML
