Audience: Purchasing and Sourcing managers/directors only


In August of 2015, Sweden-India Business Council ran its first Executive Round Table in Gothenburg for the heads of Purchasing/Sourcing with companies such as Volvo Buses, SKF, GKN Aerospace, Volvo Penta, and more. We propose to again gather a group of peers and discuss concrete sourcing challenges on a specific country – India. Participate and gain access to a unique network and true insight to others’ experiences. The next meeting is based on the result of this meeting.

Leading the discussion:

Mr. Krister Jakobsson, Senior Director Scandinavian Purchasing Group. Mr Jakobsson was the former Senior Vice President Global Sourcing at Husqvarna Group. He is also a board member of Sweden-India Business Council for which he founded this focus group targeting top sourcing executives.
