I am Dag Andersson: husband, father of three and CEO of Diaverum — one of the world’s largest providers of renal care. I live today in Gothenburg, Sweden and this is also the city where I was born and lived during the first 19 years of my life.

My career has been an interesting journey, and I have had the benefit of doing what I enjoy the most: leading organisations with culturally diverse people. With Diaverum, I truly like working for a company that is improving the quality of life for tens of thousands of chronically ill people around the world.

A bit about me
After having attended  Stockholm School of Economics, I have held leading positions in major companies such as the SKF Group (a leading global technology provider since 1907) and later at Mölnlycke Health Care (A world-leading medical solutions company). I have had the opportunity of living in several parts of the world — Singapore, Madrid, Fontainebleau (I hold an MBA from Insead), Berkhamsted (a small town in Hertfordshire, north of London) and Munich — and have visited many others. Today, I work out of our Gothenburg office where part of the executive team now is based.  I spend a large part of my time travelling to visit our teams and kidney treatment centers around the world. We currently treat 33 000 patients in close to 360 centers in 18 countries.

And something about this blog
This blog however is not about my career, it is a way of sharing some of those insights and experiences I have collected along the way. Travelling is a part of my job, so is working with highly motivated people around the globe. Hence growth, learning and innovation are constantly present in my life. I have chosen not to limit this blog to one specific topic, rather my wish is to share some personal thoughts on life and leadership in general.

I hope you enjoy reading it.

    Dear Andersson, write not for a long time. Your health is it worse? We wondered.
