About Magnus

After a few festive and confused years at the end of the seventies Magnus realised that communication is the field to study and work in. Since then he has worked in a number of trades and companies, but always with communication. For some reason he has often had the privilege of working with or for large companies or organisations, like Scania, Kraft Foods and Coca-Cola.
Before landing at Quattroporte he also had time to work as director of information at KF/Coop as well as head of communication at Nordea. His words to live by are “It’s never too late to change and learn something new”

Specialist skills:

Quintessential generalist in communication with a focus on the role of head of communication. Likes to work with helping companies or organisations become more communicative and solving the specific communicative challenges they face.

Unexpected talent:

Likes to run marathons without training first. Able to fish for a very long time without getting any bites.

Interests:

Politics, society, economics, the Stockholm peninsula, boats, cars, food, opera, horseback riding and long distance running.

What do you believe in?

I believe in the positive in people and that everyone can perform great deeds as long as they have the right chair to sit in. Focus on what you really can influence and change and realise that sometimes it comes down to changing yourself.

Who should work with Magnus?
