After a dreamy weekend in Copenhagen it was a hard blow to get back to work yesterday. On Sunday I got the news that Ingvar Kamprad had left us.
Our CEO Jesper Brodin and CIO Benny Svensson joined us in the morning at IKEA IT headquarters in Helsingborg to share memories.
As management trainees we’ve had the incredible opportunity to live with him for a week each month. It will not be the same to go back to his home in Bölsö. But I’m incredibly happy to have had the honor to meet him. He truly was a genius businessman.
