Swedish Events in Florida


 

It is with great pleasure that I welcome Åsa Guilamo as a new member of the staff at the Consulate of Sweden in Fort Lauderdale.  Åsa will become our Vice Consul once approved by the Swedish Foreign Office and the US State department.

Åsa has worked for the central government of Sweden for over ten years and has broad experience including project management, international negotiations and export promotion.  Åsa was appointed to the Embassy of Sweden in Tokyo as a scientific attaché for sustainable development.  She also served as an expert adviser for three governmental committees: The Scientific Council on Climate Issues, The Parliamentarian Committee on Climate Issues and The Delegation for Sustainable Cities.

Åsa has worked in several different positions within the Ministry of the Environment.  Prior to relocating to the US, she headed a group within the Ministry, responsible for environmental research, environmental monitoring and environmental information, as well as Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and Formas.  She has a Bachelor of Social Science from Uppsala University and a Masters in Environmental Management and Audit from Stockholm University.

Since Åsa and her family relocated to Florida, she has been involved in the Swedish School community.

Åsa likes to travel and has visited over 40 countries across the world.  She also enjoys spending time in nature and baking Swedish pastries.   

Åsa will join Anette Lemmel and me to ensure that we can deliver great service to Swedes living in Florida or visiting our great state. She will also help us to expand our collaboration with other Swedish organizations as well as other consulates in Florida, and US organizations engaged in furthering the cooperation between Sweden and the US.
