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 1984. 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.
Björn Rosengren, CEO, Sandvik AB, was honoured with the 2019 Leader of the Year award at the prestigious dinner event at Moderna museet in Stockholm on 6 November. Read more in Affärsvärlden´s feature article dedicated to Björn here.

Björn Rosengren about the Swedish leadership style:
”Jag tror på det svenska ledarskapet. Det är mer prestigelöst än i södra Europa. Det bygger på att gruppen är stark och levererar, är problemlösande istället för personberoende och jag tror det fungerar överallt."
