Biörn Riese was appointed the new Chair of the American Chamber of Commerce in Sweden, AmCham Sweden. Biörn Riese succeeds Lars Näslund who held the post for the past three years.

AmCham Sweden is a non-profit organization whose primary mission is to promote trade and investment between the United States and Sweden, and to protect U.S. corporate interests in Sweden.

"I am honored to be appointed to this interesting position of trust. The U.S. is an important trading partner for Sweden and vice versa,” says Biörn Riese. “I look forward to working to further strengthen the relations between our countries, as well as to push important ongoing issues such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).”

Biörn Riese is a lawyer at the law firm Mannheimer Swartling. Among other awards, he was ranked in 2015 as a "Star Individual" in Corporate / M & A in Chambers Global / Europe, as well as a "Leading Individual" in M & A and Corporate and Commercial in Legal 500. In addition to his involvement in AmCham Sweden, Biörn serves as Chairman of Axis AB, and My Special Day (Min Stora Dag in Swedish). Among other organizations Biörn is actively engaged in, he also serves as a director of the Swedish Anti-Corruption Institute (Institutet Mot Mutor in Swedish).

In conjunction with AmCham Sweden's Annual General Meeting where the new Board was appointed, Mikael Damberg, Swedish Minister for Enterprise and Innovation, and U.S. Ambassador to Sweden Azita Raji both spoke on the importance of strong relations between the United States and Sweden. In 2015, Swedish exports to the U.S. increased by 19 percent and imports rose by 13 percent.
