The Swedish Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Fredrik Bergqvist as new Area Manager for Team Sweden. Fredrik brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the position and will play a crucial role in the Club’s team of Regional Managers. He joined The Swedish Club more than ten years ago and has worked for the Club in both claims and underwriting areas. Prior to that he served as a senior officer on board ship and is a Master Mariner.
As Area Manager for Team Sweden Fredrik will be responsible for maintaining and developing relationships with members and brokers across Scandinavian and European markets as well as North and South America. Based in Gothenburg, he is supported by a team of 24 professionals, specialising in P&I, FD&D, H&M and loss prevention services.

Commenting on the appointment, Thomas Nordberg, Managing Director of The Swedish Club said: “This is a natural step, following as it does the changes that the Club has made to the management group. We need to ensure continuous openings for new talent, both from within the company and externally, and the promotion of Fredrik has been well earned.”
