Staffan Göjeryd was appointed CEO of Telia Carrier in August 2016. Having started at Telia Company at a time when a 14k modem was considered high tech, he has since helped drive Telia Carrier to its position as one of the world’s leading global backbones. His focus on customer excellence and delivering exceptional quality to Telia Carrier’s customers are just two of the areas that have taken him on this literal journey from the trenches to high command.
Despite knowing all there is to know about connectivity, Staffan’s main interest is what customers actually do with it. Having seen the repeated cycles of Internet boom and bust, he knows it takes more than belief and adrenaline to build a successful business.
Staffan has held technical and customer-facing roles within Telia Company in both Europe and North America. These include Director of Network Planning and head of Telia Carrier´s Data and Infrastructure business. He holds a Bachelor in Business Administration from Linköping University and is an accomplished golfer – a hobby currently taking second place to his kids.
