Anders Tylman-Mikiewicz, General Manager, Volvo Monitoring & Concept Center, Volvo Car Corporation
Anders Tylman-Mikiewicz leads the Volvo Monitoring & Concept Center, a cross-functional strategic innovation lab that – based on consumer insight – creates, cultivates and realizes innovative concepts for emotional automotive products that clearly express the future of the Volvo brand. Anders is passionate about many things, but pioneering new business areas is on top of the list. Throughout his career this curiosity has led down several previously unexplored paths, one of them being the development and launch of the first luxury plugin-hybrid in the world, the Volvo V60 Plugin Hybrid. Another one is working on Volvo’s journey toward leadership in Autonomous Driving.
He career has predominately been centered on the automotive marketing and product development areas, but during his years as a strategy consultant Anders was also exposed to a wide range of industries and functions. Personally, Anders also brings a holistic mindset, analysis, a creative spirit and an ability to connect the dots between the worlds of marketing, business, design and technology to the table. Anders holds an MBA from the School of Economics & Commercial Law (majored in Financial Analysis) at Gothenburg University; and in 1999 he earned a Master’s degree from the School of Civil Engineering (majored in Intelligent Buildings) at Sweden’s Chalmers University of Technology.
He is fluent in Swedish, Polish and English and can get by in Italian and German.
