Melker Schörling started out running companies, and later invested in those that had the potential to become best in class. Melker’s drive to explore, his interest in people and his business sense took him on a journey that speaks for itself. The key to Melker Schörling’s success has been his ability to identify the right leader for the right company. Because “it takes one to know one”, Melker always drew from his own experiences, which helped him to recognize the traits and values needed in a successful company leader.
But the right person behind the wheel also needs the right conditions to succeed. To Melker, it has always been about quick decision making, allowing maximum efficiency in the operational work. But also, it’s about sharing the upsides and downsides with key employees in the companies, and never losing focus on the result. Melker built his company around these insights. He summarizes them with a few words: “Extraordinary people need extraordinary conditions”.
MSAB was listed on the stock exchange in 2006. After a little more than eleven successful years on the stock market, MSAB was bought by the Schörling family together with Stefan Persson, Carl and Martin Bek-Nielsen and Mikael Ekdahl. MSAB was delisted in January 2018. Today, the company is driven by the second generation.
