Carl-Henric Svanberg appointed Chairman of the European Round Table of Industrialists
This is a critical moment for Europe. Business leaders urgently need to make a positive case for industry as a creator of growth and prosperity for all citizens, especially young people. But more than that, in an age of rising populism, we need to argue for values of openness and tolerance.
Carl-Henric Svanberg, current Chairman of BP and AB Volvo, has been appointed Chairman of the European Round Table of Industrialists (ERT).
Carl-Henric, a Member of the ERT since 2010, is one of Europe’s most experienced and respected industrial leaders. He takes over the role from Benoît Potier, Chairman and CEO of Air Liquide.
ERT, a forum of 54 major multinational employers, exists to promote a strong, open and competitive Europe, and one that is able to generate prosperity for all its citizens.
