She has practiced business and immigration law since 1998 and we know that her vast experience helping foreign companies establish themselves in the US will be of benefit to the Silicon Vikings network.
Many of you already know Charlotte, or at least know her by reputation, as she has contributed significantly to the Swedish community for many years. Most recently from July 2013-November 2014, she served as Chairwoman of the Swedish American Chamber of Commerce of San Francisco/Silicon Valley and was responsible for the dramatic revitalization and growth of that organization; prior to that she served on SACC SF/SV’s board from 2009-2011. Charlotte has also been active in the Swedish community on a national level having served on the Executive Committee of SACC USA as Assistant Secretary. Charlotte’s commitment to collaboration between organizations has been evident throughout her work. She worked tirelessly to help with the formation of the Association of American European Chambers of Commerce and Business Associations (an association of Bay Area organizations serving nine different countries) and served as Treasurer for the organization after its official incorporation in 2014.
Charlotte’s network also extends into the US and California political arena; she serves as a member of the board of directors of the API American Public Affairs Association (APAPA) and has helped organize events with members of the US Congress, the California State Legislature, and members of California’s Executive Branch.
We welcome Charlotte onboard with the greatest of enthusiasm and look forward to her taking Silicon Vikings to an even higher level!
