The best part of being Area Sales Manager is to deliver the Persson Innovation message to our customers and also to create a better experience to consumers.

What does sustainability mean to you?
For me, sustainability means a better world and future to my kids and the planet. I think it’s important to re-think your packaging, both because it’s easier holding your box in one rather than both hands, but also because I really believe that we need to replace plastic for sustainable materials.
