“I was fortunate enough to be involved in the start of the SCCL almost exactly 20 years ago, and was one of the fellows for the first five years. The centre has since then developed fantastically, and I look forward to being part of the centre again. It feels right that the centre becomes the home for the Swedish Corporate Governance Institute.” – Rolf Skog
