The Spiritus Mundi organisation consists of the nominating committee, the board of directors and the staff.

The nominating committee
 has the task to find suitable and qualified candidates for the board.

The board of directors
 makes decisions regarding the work and consists of the following members:


Nicolas Strömbäck, chairman

Nicolas Strömbäck is a music producer at SOH Network and also works as an environmental lawyer at the Counties Agency in Skåne. He is 31 years old, born and raised in  Malmö. With a great passion for music and culture and an ever present will to realize projects that make the world a better place, he accepted the job as a member of the Spiritus Mundi board in 2010. When Nicolas is not working with music or engages in large scale projects he likes to take care of body and mind.

Henrik has partially grown up in England, partially in Sweden. He has previously lived in the USA for close to ten years. There, among other things, he studied and worked with recording and composing music and yoga. He has also worked in Germany, Austria and Bahrain.
