Erik is joining the Chamber as our Membership Services & Business Development intern, until the end of the year.
He has an academic background in Business and Economics and is currently finalizing his masters at Uppsala university, majoring in Change Management. The internship is part of Eriks studies and he is eager to work with the SACC team to learn more about international trade and relations. Eriks previous experience in digital communication and project management will serve as a useful base for his work with the Chamber.
Erik grew up in the small town of Motala and went on to pursue his studies in Uppsala. With an environmental profile he opted to seek out extra work in the energy transition industry.
“Sacc-SF/SV´s commitment to support and develop the relationship between Swedish and American companies in the bay area is of particular interest to me because of my passion for creating meaningful synergies. This is an amazing opportunity to gain experience and will give me the chance to test my skills in an international setting.” - Erik Axelsson
