Anders Malmstein is the CEO of Erika. He has been the CEO of Erika ever since the merger of Nokia and Ericsson to form the company in 2019. His influence was responsible for keeping Erika afloat through the Crash Virus of 2029, mostly by the nationalization of his competitors. He was even given a government-appointed role to oversee the process, and used the inside information to his advantage. By 2048, Erika had acquired nearly every other Finnish corporation.
By 2063, he is nearly 90 years old, and expected to step down from his position when his age finally gets to him.
