Managing Editor - Customer Service Management

Taking control of the trouble facing SAS when he arrived, Jan turned around the company’s fortune and soon the business was both making money and enjoying rave customer service reviews. A thought pioneer on the issues surrounding free competition within the European Airline industry, Jan’s innovative approach and unparalleled experience changed the floundering business’ fortunes, with strategic leadership and staff motivation at the centre of his strategy.

Before SAS Jan had turned around the outlook for Vingresor, one of Europe's largest tour operators, and of Swedish domestic airline, Linjeflyg.

Moments of Truth is Jan’s best-selling book which has made his philosophies accessible to the masses, and has been translated into 18 languages.

In 1996 he co-founded a Scandinavian Venture Capital Organization. Through this business, Jan is involved in over 20 emerging companies, mostly in IT industries.

Jan is President of the Swedish Tennis Federation and a member of the board of the International Tennis Federation.

With an MBA under his belt and decades of relevant experience, Jan can share his business expertise on the speaking circuit, educating companies with practical takeaways on how best to improve their profit margins.
