Anna Strömwall, who starts her new job at Landvetter next month, has previously been head of security screening at Stockholm Arlanda.
It has just been announced that a new director of Sweden’s second largest airport has been appointed. Once confirmed by the Swedish Transport Agency, Anna Strömwall will assume the position of heading Gothenburg’s Landvetter airport in February.
Currently working as head of Swedavia Consult, the consultancy unit of the Swedish airport operator Swedavia, Strömwall “has many years of management experience in the transport and logistics sector”, Swedavia says.
She has previously been employed as planning manager at Scandinavia’s biggest network of container ports, APM Terminals, and as head of security screening at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
Anna Strömwall is 42 years old and has a Master’s degree in industrial economics from the Institute of Technology at Linköping University.
She succeeds Charlotte Ljunggren, who has been Landvetter’s airport director since 2012. Ljunggren will assume a new position as director for markets and commercial development for Swedavia’s ten airports, also staying on as a member of Swedavia’s group management team.
Sweden’s second-biggest airport after Stockholm Arlanda saw more than 6.7 million passengers in 2017, of whom about 5.3 million were international and 1.5 million domestic.
“[Anna Strömwall’s] extensive experience in the sector and her leadership will be a useful addition to the development of Göteborg Landvetter Airport as western Sweden’s international airport and as one of the world’s most climate-smart airports,” commented Jonas Abrahamsson, president and chief executive of Swedavia.
Strömwall herself added: “It is incredibly fun and exciting to have the opportunity, together with all the skilled and engaged employees at the airport, to continue developing Göteborg Landvetter Airport in the same positive direction we are working in today.”
