Per Strömberg is leaving Lantmännen

October 22nd, 2011

Group President and CEO Per Strömberg is leaving Lantmännen to become CEO of ICA, starting on 16 April 2012 at the latest. Per Olof Nyman, Deputy CEO and CFO, will take over until a permanent successor has been appointed.

“It’s very regrettable that Per is leaving us. He has done a great job and the strategy that we’ve been following under Per’s leadership will remain in place. Per is leaving a Lantmännen group that is more profitable, focused and well-known than it was four years ago, and we can only congratulate ICA on such a good choice of leader,” says Thomas Bodén, Chair of Lantmännen.

Per Olof Nyman, who has been the Deputy CEO and CFO since 2008, will become the Acting Group President and CEO from today, 19 October, and a recruitment process to find a permanent successor is now underway.

“It’s been a great privilege to run a company that is owned by Swedish farmers and that works throughout the value chain, from field to fork. It’s been such an incredible journey, and I know that the road that Lantmännen is taking is the road to becoming an even more successful company,” says Per Strömberg.
