After two years it is time for Sara Persson to leave her role as Executive Director at SACC-Georgia for new adventures in Sweden. Sara and her husband Nico are moving to Sara’s hometown Karlstad where the couple also met three years ago. The reason for the move back is because Nico is stepping into a new and exciting role there for the Swedish company Valmet, which he is currently working for in their Atlanta office.
What are you mostly looking forward to with your move?
Being closer to family, friends and nature. I grew up on the countryside and I am a big hiker! I have really missed the Swedish lakes, forests and wilderness. We are also expecting next year so I am looking forward to starting our next chapter in life in Sweden.
What has been the best memories during your time as Executive Director?
It's hard to pinpoint anything in specific, I think the best memories in general have been connecting with so many different members, people, companies and organizations. I have learnt so much in the process. One of the best things about my time has also been working with our talented trainees, following their journey and watching them grow has been so rewarding.
What will you miss mostly about Atlanta?
The sun, the people, UberEats, and excellent restaurants. Certainly NOT the traffic :-)
SACC-GA would like to thank Sara for everything she has done for the chamber, and wish her the best of luck in the future!
