Johanna Rosén and Paul Schrotti new board members

Paul Schrotti, new CEO for Lindéngruppen AB, and Johanna Rosén, Professor in Material Physics at Linköping University, assume the positions as new members of Höganäs' board of directors. Jenny Lindén Urnes, former CEO of Lindéngruppen and board member since 2004, and Peter Gossas, board member since 2008, will leave the board.

'Höganäs is a fantastic company and it has been extremely rewarding and fun to follow the company's development', says Jenny. 'I became a board member in 2004 and during now almost 15 years, Höganäs has gone through a huge transformation. Paul Schotti will in his new role as CEO for Lindéngruppen replace me as owner representative. This will not result in any bigger changes. As I have said earlier – in an interview with Dagens Industri this summer – we want to own Höganäs forever. I will continue to be near you and the company, even though I will not be a member of the board'.

February 7, Paul took over Jenny's role as board owner representative and Johanna joined as a member.

'We are very happy to have Johanna and Paul on-board. They will support Höganäs with their knowledge and experiences. Johanna with her great knowledge and competence within material design from the academia and Paul with his operative background', says Fredrik Emilson, CEO Höganäs. 'At the same time it is of course sad that Jenny and Peter have decided to leave and we want to thank them for their contributions during their years as members'.

Kerstin Konradsson, CEO Boliden Smelters and board member since 2016, will take over Peter's operative competences within the board.

Lisa Kjellén, Manager for the business area Brazing, will replace Nils Carlbaum as employee representative.
