“At SEB, we find ourselves in the midst of a break between the old and new economy. We are focusing on the new economy - with Internet at its centre. At the same time many of the traditional aspects are worth taking care of. This period of change, where we are clearly on the way to becoming a ‘knowledge company’ that increasingly transfers know-how to its customers, places still greater demands upon development of competence and leadership. That’s why it feels important to place clearer focus upon these questions and raise them to the highest level,” says Lars H Thunell, President and CEO of SEB.
