Sahar, what’s your leadership philosophy?

I embrace change, focus on results and lead with passion! I love helping people to grow and unlock their full potential. After all, the only sustainable way to achieve greatness in any organisation is through great people.

What makes a workplace inspiring for you?

Viasat is a very innovative workplace – we were the first in the Nordic region to launch an Ultra HD channel, to take just one example – and I find it so motivating to be surrounded by colleagues who always think one step ahead. I feel like we share a real commitment to creating something unique together.

What motivates you?

My team and my boss! I have an amazing team who believes any goal is reachable, while Anders Jensen, CEO of MTG Sweden, always supports and pushes me to be the best Sahar possible. This year, it’s also been very inspiring to sponsor MTG’s Challengers talent program and to work closely with high potential employees from across the whole company.

What’s next for you and Viasat?

We have a very exciting year ahead with some amazing product news in the pipeline. I’m particularly looking forward to expanding our broadband offering in Sweden, which is already available to more than 1 million households. When you’re lucky enough to lead such a great team, it’s natural to aim as high as you can.
