Mats are the best manager who is having high leadership skills and know what to do and how to do. Especially motivate the resources, use the resources in the correct place based on there talent and capability. Support them when they needed either official work or problems. The person who you can talk about your personal matter and get valuable advice, the no drought rather than Mats. Mats is not like a manager and he is like you best friend when you work with him. He always follow the co-operate process and he is one of the process orient person that he need to keep the company policy, core value and always thing about the benefit of the company first. Apart from this as a person he is a good father as he keep is person life separate and tale care his family even though with his busy schedule. I strongly recommend Mats whoever trying to looking for a manager to run the organization such as Financial Control, SSC or any Service providing organization. I wish him good luck and waiting for another opportunity to work with him to learn more about the leadership & management skills from Mats
Mats is a driven person who is enthusiastic about work and achieving results on time, every time. He is structured and very good at and interested in motivating personnel. These characteristics make him a good manager who is easy and fun to work with.
Mats managed the global implementation of Ericsson’s invoice scanning and workflow solution for local companies and market units. He performed the task involved with determination and stamina and managed to deliver according to our customers’ expectations and demands. Needless to say, the results increased administrative efficiency while decreasing the total cost for our local companies and Market Units.
Mats is a very experienced guy within Finance both from his career within Ericsson or earlier within SAAB. He also possesses the international aspect as he has been working as an expat for Ericsson in Saudi Arabia. As person Mats is very straight forward with no room for “bullshit” but keeping a very professional attitude about his work relations. I would definitely recommend Mats as a big asset for any organization.
My recommendations for Mats Kallmyr are based on the following qualities:
– is a genuine people manager who loves to motivate and develop his staff using proven methods

– is a skilled presenter and loves to be on stage, communication with individuals and large groups is a definite strong point
– is a visionary and shaper: an inspire groups and people to meet long term goals

On a more personal note, I feel that Mats qualifies as perhaps the best manager I have had during my 13 years at Ericsson. He has been a fantastic support to me and my development.
I wish to give him my absolute warmest recommendations!
Mats have an eye for the “big picture” and are loyal to the overall mission and strategy of the Group. He is keen on methods and tools to improve the operation at hand and seems to enjoy especially project-oriented assignments.
Mats are a Manager you get great confidence in. And he is that kind of person you really look up to. He has an extremely good educational level and strong leadership skills. A perfect manager to take inspiration from!
Mats is a very good manager as he really cares about his employees and really encourages people to come up with new ideas for improvements.
Another very positive thing is that he wants people to develop, both personally and professionally. He also is very dedicated to building a strong team that has a high-performance capacity.
Mats were my manager for about two years at Contact Center Stockholm. It was really challenging to be a part of Mats’ team, in a good way! He really focuses on the individual and the team. This means that you need to work with yourself a lot, work with giving and receiving feedback (positive/“negative”), how you express yourself, your feelings, from your point of view, no matter what anybody else thinks. No one can say what you feel is wrong. 🙂
I have received feedback from people saying they think I have been more confident, more tolerant (listen to people and have time for them) etc. This is very nice to hear and I think it was thanks to Mats and now when I don’t work together with him anymore I need to continue this work on my own because I want to keep developing the skills I have. Thank you, Mats and good luck in the future, I’m sure we’ll meet again!
During the work to make a global network of internal Contact Centers, Mats was a key person. As manager of the “template” Contact Center, he was developing all the best practices both in processes, tools, and organizational set-up. And all that with a remarkable people oriented management style. Personally, I knew Mats as a social and always passionate personality – very energizing and inspirational to be around. With a diverse set of experiences, I believe Mats is a person to engage in anything that takes this “extra passion” to get done.
I would like to thank you for our contact. I appreciate our conversation when you told me about your job and your view of leadership. It actually gave me a boost and a direction! I found it most interesting. I am looking forward to work in an organization like ST, multinational and with great opportunities for growth and development. I look forward to doing a similar “journey” like you have! Once again, thank you. Looking forward to meeting again!
I worked with Mats by STM side in the implementation of STEricsson account payable activity centralization to STM ESAS group of the Sweden companies. Thanks to our hard work and to the big experience of Mats, a strong team has been created, and after the first phase of start up in which we faced a lot of difficulties, the job has been well completed and now it is going quite well. Thank you very much, Mats!
Mats are the kind of leader who is giving his employees the opportunity to grow in their roles and responsibilities for them to be the right person in the right place. With his tremendous amount of experience in leading and coaching people, he secures that goals are met, recognizes the successes and provides feedback with the sole purpose to learn and improve, realizing that their internal motivation is increasing. In the period that I reported to him, I got to know him as an open, honest and direct person. A person to whom you at any time could reflect your ideas and visions with. In times where our surroundings are demanding for each individual, leaders like Mats are needed to keep a team motivated, focussed and empowered. It has been really a pleasure to work with Mats. I would recommend him at any time and if I am given the opportunity to work with him again, I would do that without any doubt

During the 12 years that I have known Mats, I have seen him in various roles: manager, colleague, partner and supplier/consultant to my own company “Live Systems Sweden AB”. Mats have been extremely professional and equally proficient in all of these roles. Mats is an inspirational leader, who spread positive spirit, is able to get the group goes to the same goals, to empower staff and get them to burn for their duties. As a colleague, Mats shared unselfishly his knowledge, supported his colleagues in their projects and contributed to “we-feeling” was strengthened in the group. In our relationship customer-supplier/consultant (to my own company “Live Systems Sweden AB”) performed Mats assignments in a professional manner, delivered with exceptional quality within the agreed time. The presentation that he created for our company and presented to more than three hundred customers became a real success! He demonstrates exceptional communication skills and is a talented orator. Mats create more value in every project he works with, easy to solve problems, apply analytical thinking. He has

I’ve worked with Mats within the line organization of ITTE Hub Stockholm for 1 year.
I’ve seen Mats as a very professional and innovative manager who supported all the working group and created a very healthy working environment My recommendation for the dedication and motivation shown during the project activities that he has been working with.
Mats have been very easy to work as a line manager, he enjoys in the role and is very clear in the distribution of duties and responsibilities. Mats have a unique ability to simply but clearly demonstrate the significant elements so that all participants understand, he is also sensitive to the views that show up and take NECESSARY into account these.
Mats put energy to build up our team and let us think, change and act by our self or within the team. He “plants a seed” in our minds and allows us to work with the idea in an individual pace.
In the start you get the feeling that nothing happened but after I while you understand that ideas/changes/problems are something you as a team member can handle by your self or within the team. Mats are in the background and support/coach you when needed.

Mats have adopted the new leadership model as coach and mentor and give the employees a lot of feedback in getting results and a clear strategic vision. Proactive and support are two cornerstones which can summarize his work right now.
Mats were my manager for 1 year at Ericsson. During this time, I got to know Mats as a manager that was very supportive, he made sure that his team always had what was needed to get their work done on time with the right quality and cost. But more than being just a good manager, I found Mats to be that rare type of person that focuses on what is best for the overall business and the company even if it meant sacrificing his own goals. Integrity is probably the best word I would use to describe him as he wasn’t afraid to say what needed to be said and do what needed to be done. It was extremely refreshing to work with a manager who also didn’t mind going against “big company politics” in order for the overall business to succeed. I would highly recommend Mats as an asset to any business and would be glad to work along side him again. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Mats.

Mr. Kallmyr was the recipient of an electronic invoice handling solution that I was implementing for accounts payable. He was easy to work for as he understood the large picture of how new technologies could bring control and efficiency to his department; i.e. process improvements were always on top of his mind. As a manager, he was supportive, positive and professional. He encouraged me to take own initiatives which gave fuel to my development. Thus, we have maintained our relationship since then. In summary; I find Mr. Kallmyr very professional, respectful and have a strong passion to succeed.
Had the joy of working together with Mats for 3 years, on a number of projects. Mats had a very professional attitude, in a positive sense, and always thought in ways of improving the business processes within his department. His knowledge and enthusiasm, along with a great smile, made a great contribution to the different projects we worked on.
Mr. Kallmyr was appreciated by his colleagues at Saab Cars as a dedicated and innovative Controller. He established relevant routines in areas stuck with outdated methods and downright chaos. His constant evaluation and implementation of more efficient business methods contributed in lifting the entire department to a higher level of cost effectiveness.
Mats and I worked for 2 years together. When I started as Manager Contact Center at Ericsson Netherland, I regularly visited his Contact Center in Sweden. I directly noticed his leadership skills. He had a clear view of the future developments on the Contact Center Concept and he translated that to clear strategic objectives to the global management of Ericsson. He inspired and motived his employees by giving them responsibility within the team and opportunities to develop their personal skills. This way of management led to high performance.
