Stefan Jacoby, the CEO of Volvo Cars, is the Swedish engineering industry's most influential decision maker, according to StrategiTorget Verkstadsindustrin. He received the forum's "Influencer of the Year" award at a gala held in Stockholm on Wednesday.

"This is a prestigious title that I am very proud to receive," says Stefan Jacoby in a statement.

The aim of the award is to highlight those visionaries and pioneers in Sweden's engineering industry who have the greatest influence, and it is the participants in the forum – 125 representatives from Sweden's biggest companies - who vote for the winner.

"It is naturally even more gratifying that my own peers in the engineering industry have voted for me amid this truly formidable competition. I am very proud indeed. I would also like to offer my thanks for the immense dedication of the Volvo team," says Stefan Jacoby.

Previous winners of the award include SKF's Tom Johnstone and Saab's Lena Olving.
