Meet Anki

Our Sourcing Manager Anki Kihlström Kvarmans grew up near CrossControl’s headquarters in a small town called Bollnäs. She moved to Luleå to attend the local university, Luleå Tekniska Universitet, to gain a Master of Science, Industrial Engineering and a Bachelor of Science, Business Administration and Management. The program included a 4 year supervised program and a 6 month thesis program with an industry placement. Anki completed the program with distinction in 2009 and took her first post university position at Svenska Fönster, Edsbyn as a Project Manager for Logistics. Anki excelled in the role, and met her husband at the company, but after 5 years she looked for a new challenge and joined CrossControl as a Strategic Buyer in 2015.

Our company was attractive to Anki as we presented a new dynamic and the opportunity to work with a number of engineers across a wide variety of disciplines. In her new role Anki got the opportunity to work directly with different departments, including RnD and NPD, as our cross-functional, multi-disciplinary business model encourages collaboration throughout the company.

As part of her professional development Anki completed an external course in Supplier Negotiation and since being promoted to Sourcing Manager in 2019 has taken another course in Management. In June 2020 Anki joined our management team as a leader of our company.

Anki enjoys both of her new roles which have given her the opportunity to develop, personally and professionally, as well as provide insight into how companies operate outside of Sweden, as our global company provides a window into how cultural differences can influence entire operations. And as we move forward, she looks forward to the opportunity to further develop in her new positions.

Outside of the office Anki lives with her husband and young son in Bollnäs near where she grew up. When she has time to get outside, Anki enjoys cross-country skiing and has completed the Vasaloppet 6 times with a person best finish of just 6 hrs and 36 minutes.
