“You are dearly missed by your friends here at the TSCC,” stated the news.

He passed away on 29 November 2018. Born in 1935 in Skanör, Sweden, Kenneth lived and worked in Thailand since 2001 until his retirement.

Kenneth grew up in Gothenburg and studied at Handelshögskolan as one of the legendary Ulf af Trolles students. He moved to Värmland where he worked as Marketing Manager for Vasabröd in Filipstad and spent 13 years there with his wife Berit and their three sons. This was an environment he liked. He was interested in poetry and was a bit of a poet himself so he felt he was in the right place. Later on his employment with Vasabröd took the family to Brussels in Belgium.

After some years back in Sweden, Kenneth and Berit moved to Thailand in 2001 where Kenneth became a partner and the CEO of Q Matic Asia and Berit became a leading figure in SWEA. Kenneth was elected as Chairman of the Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce in 2010, a position he held till 2014.

With Kenneth’s business acumen and social skills, he managed to balance between his CEO function, the Chairmanship of the Chamber and his time with family and friends in an admirable fashion.

We will remember Kenneth for his warm heart and great consideration for everyone who he came in touch with in life. A true gentleman has left us. Our thoughts are with Berit and their sons with families.

The burial will take place on 28 December 2018 at 14:00 at Skanör kyrka.
