27 September 1977 |
Long Island, New York, United States
|Occupation||Chairman and principal owner of Investment AB Kinnevik|
Cristina grew up in Long Island but with strong connections to Sweden. She learnt Swedish in nine months in 1997 when studying at Lund University, Sweden. Since September 2005, Cristina Stenbeck has been married to the English businessman Alexander Fitzgibbons. The couple has three daughters and lives in London.
In 2002 her father died, and his children became the heirs of his business empire, which revolves around the investment company Investment AB Kinnevik. The estate covered many holdings in different domiciles, which is why the finalisation of the estate process was not until 2006.
Since her father died, Cristina has been the family's representative on the board of directors of Investment AB Kinnevik. She has presided over the capital restructuring of the associated companies Millicom and Metro as well as the merger between Invik and Investment AB Kinnevik and the acquisition of Assidomän Cartonboard.[dead link]
