Melker Jernberg new President and CEO of Höganäs

After nine years as President and CEO, Alrik Danielson has decided to move on in his career. The Höganäs Board of Directors has elected Melker Jernberg as Alrik’s successor. Melker’s current position is as Senior Vice President and manager of region EMEA at SSAB. Prior to that he was manager of the bus division at Scania AB.

– We are very happy to have recruited Melker Jernberg to Höganäs, says Staffan Bohman, Chairman of the Board. Melker has a solid career and brings with him relevant experience and competence. It is a loss that Alrik Danielson chooses to leave the company, but the Board greatly appreciates his contribution to Höganäs’ positive development during his period as CEO.

– Höganäs is an outstanding company and we have achieved a lot together, says Alrik Danielson. But there comes a point when it is time to hand over to the next person to lead the Group into the next exciting phase. I truly wish Melker the best of luck. I am convinced that Höganäs will be very successful also in the future.

Melker Jernberg's present area of responsibility has an annual turnover of SEK 20 billion. Now he looks forward to taking on the CEO position at Höganäs.

– I have followed Höganäs from a distance during many years and I have been impressed by how well-run the company is. It will be exciting to get to both the business and everyone who works at Höganäs.

Melker Jernberg will join Höganäs during the autumn.
