Leader of the Year is Sweden’s premier award recognising excellence in leadership in the private and public sectors. Co-ordinated by Affärsvärlden, Sweden’s leading weekly business magazine, Leader of the Year has been celebrating and acknowledging prominent business leaders for the past three decades.
PA, along with Affärsvärlden, was part of the original team that created the award in 1983. As a partner, we are also a member of the nomination jury.
Our work with organisations globally requires us to engage and build relationships with leaders across a wide range of sectors. This gives us a broad perspective on management and leadership which is vital to the success and reputation of the programme.
Previous winners include many of Sweden’s leading business people.
