After having lived many years in Italy where my entire life was focused on work and career, I decided 5 years ago it was time for more life quality. It was through LinkedIn that I found an interesting job close to Sundsvall in the center of Sweden. Regarding life quality, the Västernorrland region has a lot to offer: a beautiful nature with mountains, lakes and the Bothnian sea. Moreover, the way of working and doing business here is more relaxed than in the south of Europe. After many years of travelling I finally found my home and I obtained a good balance between work an leisure time!

What are your expectations with regards to the Dutch Chamber?
First of all, the Dutch Chamber is a great opportunity to improve my network. At the same time, I hope I can help the Dutch Chamber to become stronger here in the central part of Sweden. This area is developing very fast and there are huge investments going on in green and sustainable industry. Therefore, this could also be the right time for the Dutch Chamber to put more focus on our region.
