Thomas Nordberg’s career turned full circle when he returned to the Swedish Club as managing director this year.

His first job in marine insurance was as a trainee at the Gothenburg-based mutual in 1992 after graduating in maritime law from the Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law in Oslo.

His 30-year-long route back to the Swedish Club came via working at a private law practice, then Norwegian protection and indemnity club Gard, where he held senior positions in Gothenburg, London and Hong Kong.
