The Crown Princess of Sweden handed Bona AB CEO Kerstin Lindell the Export Hermes 2014 award at World Trade Day in Stockholm on Aug. 28.


The award, given to companies with notable export success, was presented by the Swedish Fund for Export Development. Bona, headquartered in Sweden, is now in more than 100 countries through its subsidiaries and distributors.

"Ninety-eight percent of Bona's sales are outside Sweden thanks to our subsidiaries and distributors that are doing a fantastic job," Lindell told the crowd at the reception.

The Export Hermes award has been presented each year since 1981 to Swedish companies that have shown successful export growth.
