For the eighth consecutive year, the digital leadership platform awards the CEO of the Year award. Now the finalists have been appointed and in the Young CEO of the Year category, the Academic Work Group is represented by Digitalent’s CEO and founder Lina Ullman.

The purpose of the CEO of the Year award is to highlight and reward good role models among Sweden’s CEOs and, through the power of the good example, influence a value-driven leadership and a positive development of Swedish business.

Now it is clear who the finalists are for this year’s awards, which are divided into four categories: small, medium, large companies and Young CEO of the Year.
