WISTA Sweden’s leadership award is awarded yearly to highlight a leader within shipping and trading that combines a visionary and goal-oriented leadership with great commitment for his or her organisation.

The members of WISTA Sweden nominate candidates for the award. A jury consisting of renowned business executives select three names, interview references and then select an awardee. WISTA Sweden’s Compass Rose is presented to the awardee at the celebration of World Maritime Day each year.

The leadership award was founded in 2007, when WISTA Sweden celebrated its 20th anniversary.

The award jury consists of:

Birgitta Johansson, CEO Magiliam AB;
Kjell-Åke Hvittfeldt, Senior Vice President, Volvo Logistics Corporation;
Ragnar Johansson, CEO Swedish Orient Line;
Eva Hansdotter HR Director, People & Soft Values at Stena
Lena Göthberg, GIGS by Lena G, President of WISTA Sweden 2004–2008.
