Jan Stenbeck (Jan Stenbeck)

Jan Stenbeck

Business Magnate. A Harvard Business School graduate, he was chairman of the board for Kinnevik, a leading Swedish combine in IT, telecom and media. Tele2, TV3, Radio Rix and Metro International, were some of the companies that helped him building an empire estimated to more than 10 billion dollars. He was a self-willing, highly efficient person, who most certainly did things his own way. The posthumous reputation for Jan Stenbeck is describing a generous, warm friend and a good, well-respected leader. Because of his interest in sailing he was involved with sponsoring a boat participating Americas Cup. But he never was to see the race. A sudden heart attack ended his life the 19th of August 2002 when visiting Paris. (bio by: Peter Robsahm)
