In memory of Börje Johansson (1945–2020)
It is with the deepest sorrow that we have to announce that Börje Johansson, professor emeritus at Jönköping International Business School, Jönköping University, Sweden passed away in his home in Stockholm, Sweden on June 18, 2020.
He was one of the founders of the Uddevalla Symposium in 1998 and has been a leading person through the history of these annual gatherings for more than twenty years. He served as a member of the Scientific Committee since the start and was a member of the Organizing Committee for many years.
We will remember him as a very wise, enthusiastic, and generous man, always willing to listen and give good advises to both young scholars as well as to senior colleagues. Although we are very happy to have had the opportunity to cooperate and work together with him for more than two decades, we shall miss him greatly. Today, our thoughts go to his family.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee
Iréne Bernhard, PhD,
University West, Sweden
