Meet Ms. Lena Olving
The Women Inspiring Europe 2011 Calendar features Ms.Lena Olvingin the month of February.
In 2010, Lena Olving was named the most powerful woman in Swedish business. As chief operating officer for the defence and security group Saab AB and sales of SEK 25 billion, she topped the list of the 125 most powerful women in Swedish business published annually by Swedish weekly magazine Veckans Affärer. On the basis of four criteria – position, financial responsibility, type of industry and potential – the jury selected Olving as last year’s number one after successive years of working her way up the list: in 2002, Olving was number 82 as the newly appointed CEO for Volvo Cars in Asia, and in 2009 she made it into the top 10.
