On Wednesday 28 November, Prince Daniel presented the Golden Gavel award at a lunch at the Grand Hôtel in Stockholm.
There are two categories of the Golden Gavel award: one for stock exchange listed companies and one for private companies. The 2012 Golden Gavels were awarded to Kinnevik's Cristina Stenbeck in the listed companies category, and to Atteviks Bil AB's Johan Markman in the private companies category. The Golden Gavel award for outstanding performance as a chairman is awarded to a chairman who is a good example of the way in which the role should be performed.
