The Hamrin Foundation creates interdisciplinary projects that move society, academia, and business. To develop the foundation’s operations, The Hamrin Foundation has recruited Hanna Ståhl as CEO – the first since the foundation was founded in 1986.
Hanna Ståhl most recently comes from the role as university director at Chalmers University of Technology and will take up the new role as executive director of The Hamrin Foundation on 1 June 2023.
”In Hanna, we have recruited a person who has broad experience from universities and the higher education sector. She will be the first CEO since The Hamrin Foundation was founded in 1986 and I look forward to Hanna, together with me, the team and the board, now developing the Foundation’s operations further. We want to create the best conditions to run the foundation, create more and with academic integrity take on societal challenges in order to develop society”, says Lovisa Hamrin, chair of The Hamrin Foundation.
Hanna Ståhl is educated at Umeå University and has an MBA from BI School of Economics in Oslo, which also includes courses from Berkeley and NTU in Singapore. Hanna has 17 years of experience from various roles within academia, both from Jönköping International Business School (JIBS), Jönköping University and Chalmers University of Technology. Hanna is also a part of the board of Stiftelsen Göteborgs Studentbostäder.
“I see it as a great privilege and extremely inspiring to be involved in leading and developing The Hamrin Foundation. I am very much looking forward to being able to combine competence, experience and networks from the academy in a new context. One of my focus areas going forward will be to develop the investment in an institute that The Hamrin Foundation has started work on”, says Hanna Ståhl.
