The Inspector is the nation’s formal leader, which means that he watches over and promotes the nation. The Inspector should be an academic teacher and, by tradition, usually is a professor. Historically, the position was created by the university to keep an eye on the students, when the difficulty in outlawing the nations was found. At Kristianstads Nation, the Inspector presides over the meetings of the nation and the senior staff meetings. He also represents the nation in different ways, such as appearances at others nations’ events and gives speeches at student events in Lund.

Many nations have appointed one or several Proinspectors. These elected individuals are not academic teachers, but are regular civilians that are old members of our nation. They support the Inspector with knowledge and contacts from business life. If needed, they can also temporarily represent and take on the duties of the inspector during events and meetings. The Proinspectors at Kristianstads nation are Ola Troedsson and Emma Odsell Jangö.
Ola Troedsson started his studies in Lund 1971 and immediately fell for the student life of Lund. He moved to Kristianstads Nation where he lived many years at corridor 3S. During his years as a student, Ola had several posts at the nation, among others ProNotarie, ProQurator and övermarskalk for Snapphanefesten several years.
When the studies ended 1977 and Ola got his degree in law, his succesfull career started both in Sweden and abroad. After diferent leading positions at Perstorp PLM and Brio, Ola came to IKEA, where he worked as administration manager Asia, investment manager for deliveries and CIO. Although, perhaps the most outstanding achievement in Olas career could be that he during his time at PLM year 1986 introduced the well known wastebasket for Lundakarnevalen.
