M9 – a foundation in memory of Anders Nissen
Anders Nissen was CEO of Pandox between 1995–2021. He was also deeply involved in Swedish handball and saw first and foremost himself as a sports leader and coach.

Anders put his heart and soul into his clubs and associations, and saw himself first and foremost as a sports manager and coach. Sport was where he found inspiration for his leadership style. Somewhat jokingly, he regarded his job as CEO of a listed company as his plan B after he didn’t make the national handball team. But Anders’ experience in the corporate world would also help to develop and strengthen Swedish handball in many different ways. Breadth was important to Anders, but excelling at something was crucial.
This was the starting point when the M9 foundation in his name was founded on 2 November 2021 based on donations from Pandox and Ulla Nissen.
The purpose of the foundation is to promote Swedish handball. Among the ways it will do this is by sup-porting and contributing to innovation in leadership and talent development – particularly at the elite level – and by developing knowledge, quality and a business approach.
The board consists of Stefan Lövgren (chairman), Staffan Olsson (member) and Oscar Nissen (member).
