Stefan – Branch Manager, Denmark

Stefan Brochmann

“I became a Branch Manager in 2010. Today I am Branch Manager in Silkeborg. It means a lot to me to be responsible for making sure that the branch is working well and progressing. 

The mechanisms that I use as a Branch Manager differ a lot from those I relied on as an Account Manager. Nowadays, me and my customer meetings are no longer the most important, it is how we co-operate and how every colleague contributes and develops, that matter.

To be able to maintain profitability in the long run, the most important thing for a branch is to have satisfied customers. At the branch, we focus primarily on achieving high customer satisfaction, although other tasks also take their time." 

Kristina – Debt Capital Markets, Norway

Kristina Aass

“In 2003, I started studying business administration at Norway's Business School in Bergen, where I later took my Master's degree in Strategy and Management. As a student, I worked part-time at Handelsbanken's Fana branch in Bergen. 

After I graduated from school, I got a full-time job at the Skøyen branch. I started working as a Personal Banking Account Manager and later began working with corporate customers. In the summer of 2015, I started working at Debt Capital Markets.

My everyday responsibilities as Account Manager at Debt Capital Markets are varied and challenging. I am the Key Account Manager for all customers in my portfolio and take care of the entire customer relationship. This means that I work closely with the decision-makers at the companies."

Erik – Branch Manager, Sweden

Erik Mattsson

"Today, I'm working as a Branch Manager at Handelsbanken's Hedesunda branch office, which is located in a small town in central Sweden. 

The first time I came to a branch office as a bank employee was when I started my university studies and at the same time started my journey at the Bank via the Bank's student programme. 

During my time in the programme I got to learn what it's like to work at a branch office and how important the local branch is to Handelsbanken's operations. I also got the opportunity to travel to the UK to see how our business model is applied and evolves outside the Nordic region."
