Melker Schorling

Melker Schorling was born on May 15, 1947 in Stockholm, Sweden, Sweden. Melker Schörling lay the foundation for his wealth by negotiating with fellow billionaire Gustaf Douglas to get a stake in troubled security-giant Securitas in return to accepting the CEO role in 1987. A little more than a decade later, he set up Melker Schörling AB as a holding company for his investments. Now publicly traded, Melker Schörling AB holds stakes in precision-measuring tool maker Hexagon and lock manufacturer Assa Abloy and counts H&M billionaires Stefan Persson and his sister Lottie as shareholders. Stefan is also a longtime board member, as is both his daughter Sofia and Märta. Schörling announced he would leave his chairman post in 2017, citing health issues.
