“I’m delighted that Peter Wallin, who brings extensive experience from various positions at Skanska, has agreed to take on the role of Executive Chairman of the Board of the Ratos company HENT. HENT represents a significant part of Ratos net sales. The company has had high growth in recent years but has been forced to make large project write downs in a number of projects which has affected the results during 2018 and 2019. I am convinced that Peter will be an important person in the company’s ongoing work to establish the structure and processes needed for HENT to increase profitability by providing close support to the company’s management,” says Jonas Wiström, CEO of Ratos.
While Peter Wallin serves as Executive Chairman of the Board of HENT, he will be replaced as CFO of Ratos by Jonas Ågrup. Jonas most recently comes from the role of CFO at Munters. Previous positions include, among others, CFO at ÅF.
All the above changes will take effect from 10 February 2020.
