Kristin has broad experience from law firms, international arbitration, and leadership.

Kristin will continue to improve the SCC and enhance the level of dispute resolution services offered to its users,” says Andreas Hatzigeorgiou, CEO of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.
“I am excited to start my new role, and very grateful for the confidence shown in me by the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce. I look forward to leading and continuing to develop this 100-year-old institution, which today represents one of the most modern and prominent international forums for international arbitration. Our aim is to offer the business community reliable and efficient dispute resolution, which is a key element of a healthy business climate and promotes international trade”, says Ms Campbell-Wilson.
Prior to joining the SCC, Ms Campbell-Wilson was a lawyer in the dispute resolution group at the Stockholm office of an international law firm. As SCC Deputy Secretary General since 2012, she has headed the case management team and lead the development of institutional rules and procedures and other business development activities, most recently the online SCC Platform and the SCC Express dispute resolution tool launched earlier this year. She is a sought-after speaker and moderator at domestic and international arbitration-related events.
“The SCC is quick on its feet, and continuously seeks to adapt and improve our services to best serve the Swedish and international business communities. We are currently going through a phase of expansion, with recent additions to the SCC portfolio of services, and several new team members. We will also find new forms of networking, to maintain our role as a natural meeting place for the international arbitration community, business and other stakeholders”, says Ms Campbell-Wilson.
