On December 1, SACC-New York presented the 27th annual Lucia Trade Award to Annika Falkengren, president and CEO of SEB, in recognition of her longstanding support of free trade. In addition to her stature as a global business leader — last year she was named European Banker of the Year — Falkengren is an SACC-New York Board Member.

“It is a deep honor for me to be awarded the SACC-New York Lucia Trade Award,” said Falkengren. “The award is in itself a tribute to SACC-New York’s important and relentless work for promoting free trade, going back more than 25 years. This work continues to be more important than ever.”
