Mentor Award

Mentor Award

Instituted in 2006, and presented annually at the Swedish-American Executive Women's Conference, this Award honors a businessman who has extensively encouraged and supported women in business.

Recipients include:

2006: Rune BorgFormer Head of Group Media Relations, Vattenfall

The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce in New York presented the 1st Annual Mentor Award in connection with their Fifth Annual Swedish-American Executive Women's Conference in New York on November 9, 2006.

2006 year's Mentor Award was awarded to Mr. Borg, who has been given many titles over the course of his long and successful stint in Swedish-American business: Guru, Super-informant, Heavyweight, Master Matchmaker, Living Legend and the man who knows too much. He is also a person who has worked all his life behind the scenes and is extremely successfully in doing so. Mr. Borg has worked for many multinational companies such as Uddeholm, Nobel Industrier, Pharmacia, Procordia, Volvo, Skandia and SEB. He has worked for Pehr G. Gyllenhammar, Erik Penser, Sören Gyll, Marcus Wallenberg, and Peter Wallenberg, just to name a few. During the past 20 years not much has been going on within the Swedish-American community that he has not been involved with, especially in Sweden. Whenever there is a big event planned, he has been asked to take part in it, as with Sweden's bid to host the 2004 Olympics or The King and Queen's 25th wedding anniversary. And through it all he has built an unparalleled network of executive women through his businesses. His outstanding and exceptional support and encouragement of women in business is unmatched, and this credit is long overdue.
