Group management team

Keeping all parts of our business running smoothly and working together requires a management team that works across countries and sectors, and one that is strongly connected to our mission.

We asked our management team to share cultural locations and literature that mean something to them personally, and this is what they had to say.

Group Management Team

Joel Sommerfeldt

President & CEO

"My favourite book is "Bland Franska Bönder” av August Strindberg (1849-1912). It's hard to pick one or two of my favourite places but; Guggenheim Museum in NY of course and I love to visit the small medieval towns of Cilento, Campania with a 2000+ year history preserved in the buildings, streets and stories."

Maria Wasing

COO & Executive Vice President

"I collect reading experiences and maintain my “must read bucket list”. Starting a new book is like entering into a new world for me. Every experience is different: from fun, seeing another viewpoint and opening new perspectives which leaves you thinking to utter sadness. One of the experiences I remember the strongest is Imre Kertész novel "Fatelessness", which I warmly recommend! I also gladly welcome your recommendations!"

Fredrik Paulsson

Chief Technical Officer

"I'm a technical person with a particular interest in metadata, so I love reading around the topic, and gaining knowledge about new development strategies."

Ann Melaerts

Vice President Strategic Initiatives

"I enjoy working in a cultural environment and I also like the customers we work with. Being Belgian with French as first language there are lots of French books I love. I’m very eclectic and also read British and American authors as well as Dutch or Swedish ones (translations !)."

Eva Houltzén

Managing Director, Axiell Media

"I like my three daughters to read Edith Södergran, one of the most important poets in Nordic literature. Her poetry made me discover lyrical modernism (a lot to discover!). Her poems show how few words can empower you to own your own space and who you are."

Elisabet Thylander

Head of Finance and Administration

"'The Diary of a Young Girl' moved me deeply when I read it, at about the same age as Anne Frank was when she started to write her diary. It's a book I will always remember and I think it is a topic that unfortunately still is relevant today and a book well worth reading."

Marie Flackerup

Chief HR Officer

"I love Es Baluard - Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Palma, Spain in June 2018 showing Bernardi Roig films 2000-2018 – which is cultural experience at its best."

Jenny Poncin

Head of Operations, Nacka Libraries
