What is your current role at Looklet?
I’m currently the COO at Looklet and my teams include the Technical Support, Product Experience, Onboarding, Image Production, Face Production and Supply Chain as well as our office in Sri Lanka.
What is your passion?
As a leader I’m passionate about enabling my teams to succeed and deliver the results that I know that they can. I believe that I can enable this by setting up clear goals, while allowing the teams to find the right path to those goals. I’m convinced that we all perform a little bit better and grow as people when having both responsibility and mandate a little bit outside your comfort zone.
Where do you find inspiration for your leadership?
I find inspiration for my leadership in role models around me. During my career I have had the benefit of having amazing role models - from my first Nordic CEO at Procter & Gamble when I was fresh out of university with her approach on accountability and always doing the right thing, to store personnel at H&M teaching me all about service and an amazing team at Looklet inspiring me with their passion for the business.
What do you think about the initiative “Framtidens kvinnliga ledare” and that you were selected as one of the leadership role models?
I’m incredibly proud and honored to be a part of such a fantastic group of strong and inspirational women.
