My first job before going to business school at the University- Handelshögskolan in Gothenburg, was at SKF in Paris 1958. In those days, De Gaulle was the biggest and Brigitte Bardot was at her peak of beauty.

After that, my eventful period at Volvo with President Gunnar Engellau acting as my mentor began. When P.G. Gyllenhammar became the president in 1971, he elected me onto the company management board as SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT and  the youngest director at Volvo. He remained my boss for 12 years.

Volvo Data

In 1969, I became head of Volvo data, which is now called Volvo IT with 6000 employees.

As head who had just taken over VOLVO-DATA 1969 I was commissioned to build a complete new internationally acclaimed computer building with an innovative new generation of IBM computers for Volvo. At the time, this was one of the largest computer centers in Europé. It was completed in 1971 and is today called VOLVO IT , largest  in Sweden with 6000 employees world-wide.

Framtidens Datorer

I designed back in 1977 the future of PC / COMPUTERS in collaboration with IBM and Others.

I initiated OFFICE-85 (“KONTOR-85”) on a DVD (Se the Menu FILM) at Volvo as early as 1977 aiming for 1985 to be a new generation of PC/Computers. I created detailed specifications in consultation with the Swedish Telecommunications Authorities. (See Project Office 85.) Consultations took place with the world’s leading computer manufacturers, mainly in California, IBM, Xerox, Univac and Philips etc in order to coordinate large computers, word processors and electronic telephone switchboards. It became an internationally acclaimed collaboration. who contributed to the furure PC. I initiated Sweden’s and probably the world’s first major electronic telephone switchboard in cooperation with the telecommunication giant, Eriksson.
