Introduction of the new SACC Young Professional Board

We are happy to introduce Henric Nordenborg – New Chair of the SACC Young Professionals Board

Henric is an Account Executive, Corporate Development at SS&C Intralinks in Sydney. He hails originally from a farm near the small country town of Väderstad, Sweden, but has considered Australia his home since 2016 when he made the move “down under” to pursue his second undergraduate degree in Business at Bond University. He presently serves as an Account Executive in the Financial Technology sector. Pyrmont is now his chosen residence, where he resides with his partner and their beloved Cavoodle puppy named Otto. Beyond his professional life, Henric’s passions encompass networking, globetrotting, sports, and sailing. Furthermore, his heart is deeply committed to community engagement and he has a strong commitment to fostering a positive change in the world. LinkedIn: Henric Nordenborg

We also take this opportunity to thank SACC Young Professionals previous Chair Therese Nithenius who did a brilliant job leading the YP Board and its members. Therese was also a key initiative taker to introduce the SACC Mentorship Program in 2021. THANK YOU Therese and well done!
Henric has 4 fellow board members in his team, Linda Eriksson, Ellen Caire, Johannes Nordqvist and Johan Ekerlund who will now engage in SACC YP events and activities. Meet the new YP Board here:
A big welcome to Henric and the new YP Board!

Next SACC YP Event – Football celebrations continue!

During the FIFA Womens World Cup we organised a number of SACC YP catch-ups to watch the games in Sydney CBD at Cheers Bar and in Manly at the Wharf Bar. It was a huge success with hundreds of Australian Swedes gathered and creating two massive yellow walls on both sides of the bridge, cheering and celebrating passionately. Now that the World Cup dust has finally settled, the women certainly delivered on their promises and hosted a medal celebration on home turf (at least for us Australian-Swedes), and what a celebration it was!
After a somewhat disappointing loss to the Spanish team, which unfortunately cost us Sweden’s first shot at gold, the women at least managed to run circles around “the Matildas” and not only secure the bronze medal but also clinch the top spot in the FIFA world rankings.
We believe this is certainly worth celebrating. Therefore, in our capacity as the Swedish-Australian Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professional division, we will be gathering at the Garden Bar at the Paragon Hotel in Circular Quay on Saturday, September 23rd at 6:00 PM.
Event details
Date: Saturday 23 September
Time: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Location: Garden Bar at the Paragon Hotel in Circular Quay, 1 Loftus St, Sydney NSW 2000

 P.S. Sweden is actually facing Spain in a friendly match later in the night, so for those of you eager for a rematch, this is your chance to dig out your Swedish colors and come together again. The match will be shown at Cheers, and the gathering for this match is at 2:00 AM.

Will we see you on the 23rd?

Cheers from SACC YP
