Susanne Jacobsson, who was previously Change Manager at TeliaSonera, has been appointed HR/Communications director and will replace Martin Lundin who is leaving the Perstorp Group
Susanne, who has a B.Sc in Mechanical Engineering from Chalmers Institute of Technology, was previously Change Manager at TeliaSonera, the Swedish/Finnish Telecom company. She has spent the majority of her career at Telia working with business development, sales and marketing. Her hometown is Gothenburg, Sweden where she lives with her husband Michael and their two sons aged 19 and 21.
"I'm really looking forward to working for Perstorp. I'm impressed by the company and the high levels of expertise and quality here. This is a completely new industry for me but it does however have a similar environment to my previous work-place - high technological expertise, own production and industrial clients. It will be really exciting to work at a company going through changes, that focuses on growth and where HR and communication are both important parts of this," says Susanne.
"I'm happy that we've recruited Susanne to Perstorp's management team. With her solid background in sales and marketing, coupled with her extensive experience of change management, her skills will slot in well with the growth challenges that face us," states President and CEO Lennart Holm.
Susanne will officially assume her new responsibilities as Director HR/Communication´s in August 2006, but will be working herself into the business before this.
