”Torbjörn's long career at Vattenfall has meant that he has contributed to many different parts of Vattenfall's operations. His deep and broad experience has been very valuable to me and to the group management, not least as energy industry embarks up a period of revolutionary change. I will miss him and wish him the best of luck for the next step”, says Anna Borg, president and CEO of Vattenfall.

She has always been able to see the business benefit, and she deservedly won Corporate Lawyer of the Year 2021 and Chief Legal Officer of the Year 2023. I will miss her and wish her all the best in the next chapter of her life”, says Anna Borg.
