Sweden’s Höganäs AB has announced the appointment of Magnus Hall as its new chairman, along with new board members Charlotte Strömberg and Anna Månsson. Hall, previously CEO of Vattenfall and Holmen, replaces Kurt Jofs who served eight years on the board, the final two of which were as chairman.
The changes are seen as a natural part of the rotation that takes place on all boards, with the timing being ideal as it embarks on a journey to further reduce its climate footprint.
Charlotte Strömberg, previously Head of Investment Banking at Carnegie and CEO Nordics for the real estate advisory firm JLL, will replace Kerstin Konradsson. Anna Månsson will assume the position previously held by Joanna Rosén. Månsson has extensive automotive industry experience and currently works as a management consultant and partner with Bain & Co.
“I want to welcome Magnus as the new chairman of the board and I think he will add new perspectives on both the change journey the company is in, as well as our transition to a climate-neutral company,” commented Fredrik Emilson, CEO. “I also would like to welcome Lotta [Strömberg] and Anna, and I think their experience of both change management and the car industry will benefit the company’s further journey.”
