Welcome new Business Development Coordinator Anna Malmsten and Marketing & Event Coordinator Josefin!

After a long, warm summer it is safe to say that we are more than ready to kick-start this fall with a lot of new events and activities planned. For SACC-GA this means that new trainees are joining the team, and we are happy to welcome Anna Malmsten for the Business Development position and Josefin Edenborg as Marketing & Event position. Read on to get to know more about Anna and Josefin and their thoughts of their upcoming months here in Atlanta!


Anna Malmsten - Business Development Coordinator

What do you look forward the most?
I look forward to experiencing the culture here in the states, both in terms of business culture and outside work and to see how it differs from the Swedish culture. I also look forward to meeting new people and to the networking events.

What will you bring to your position and SACC-GA?

I will bring a positive mindset and a sense for customer service. I have previous been working in retail and banking, both two service industries which gave me an understanding of the importance of the customers need which I think will be a good starting point in my position as Business Development Coordinator.

What do you hope to gain from this experience?

I hope to broaden my perspectives and gain a better cultural understanding of how the US market differ from the Swedish market. As SACC-GE is a non-profit organization, I also hope to gain a deeper understanding of the structure of a non-profit organization and how it is to work for such an organization.

Tell us a little about yourself!

I am originally from outside a small city called Kristianstad in southern Sweden where I grew up and lived my 23 first years. Since then I have lived 6 months in Hong Kong before I moved to Uppsala where I am studying a master’s in Business and Management at Uppsala University. Besides my studies and work I love to travel, meet new people, and to experience new cultures and I believe that there is something to learn from every new meeting. I also try to stay active and I have been competing in both Toughest and Tough Viking which are two obstacle courses in Sweden.


Josefin Edenborg - Marketing & Event Coordinator


What do you look forward the most?

I have always wanted to go to the US and experience the culture and working life here, so choosing one thing is hard. However, I am especially looking forward to all the people I will have the opportunity to meet, both within a business environment but also private. I am also really excited about the events I will get the opportunity to project lead, which I hope people will enjoy and create great memories at.

What will you bring to your position and SACC-GA?

Through my role as president of the Exchange committee at my student association, I gained a lot of experience in terms of project event/marketing planning and problem solving which I believe I can contribute with as well as develop. I also hope that my creativity and enthusiasm within the area can be a valuable addition to the team at SACC-GA.

What do you hope to gain from this experience?

I hope to gain insight in the American business culture and how it differs from Sweden, as well as develop my skills within marketing. As this is a role comes with a lot of responsibility and ownership of your own work, I am also convinced that I will have to challenge myself in many ways which is a valuable experience in itself.

Tell us a little about yourself!

I just graduated from my BSc at Stockholm School of Economics where I spent the last three years. Before that I spent almost as long living in London, initially working as an au pair and after that within retail. I grew up in a small town called Nässjö in Småland where my family still lives and I love to visit. My best friend is my identical twin (!) Isabelle who I don’t just share looks with but also the same bad sense of humour. On my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, as well as travel.
