Rubber compounding specialist Hexpol has appointed a new president and CEO, Georg Brunstam, who is currently chairman of the board for the company. He will assume his new position on November 1.
“During the last two quarters I have, as a daily involved chairman of the board, together with our interim CEO and the whole management team, worked intensively to implement major changes and improvements within the Hexpol Group,” Brunstam said.
“The changes give a better customer focus and a significantly lower cost level, and in addition, the long-term strategy has been strengthened. I am very inspired to continue this work, as president and CEO, during a long time ahead. During the spring, I will also reduce the number of external board assignments significantly.”
Hexpol’s board has also decided to appoint Peter Rosén, currently CFO and interim CEO, to deputy CEO.
“The board is very satisfied that Georg and Peter, now on a permanent basis, will continue the work to further improve the development of Hexpol in the short and long term” said Alf Göransson, a board member since 2007 who has been proposed as the new chairman of the board by the nomination committee.
