SVAB’s board has decided to appoint a new CEO. On August 1, Göran Karlström becomes the new CEO of the company. He has previously worked as CEO for Liebherr Sverige AB, and before that he has a 25 year history from Volvo Construction Equipment.
I am very pleased that we have Göran as the new CEO of the company. With Göran at the rudder we get an experienced and good leader with good industry and product knowledge. This will strengthen the company further in our continued efforts to make life easier for machine operators, says current CEO, Chairman and owner Kent Bengtsson.
Kent himself will now focus more on product development within the company, like he did when it all started.
I am passionate about technology and development and feel that I am beeing more useful there, than as a leader, says Kent with a smile.
