Holmen names Fredrik Holgersson as new mill manager of its Braviken paper mill in Sweden; Holgersson replaces Rikard Wallin, who will take over responsibility for company's international sales

STOCKHOLM , March 10, 2014 (press release) – Fredrik Holgersson, 41, is currently responsible for Operations & Logistics in Holmen Paper’s marketing department. He will be taking over the helm of Braviken Paper Mill in an exciting but challenging period.

“Braviken has undergone major organisational changes as it adapts to a tough market climate. At the same time we are carrying out proactive product development work to improve profitability. I’m really looking forward to becoming part of the skilled team that will take the mill into the future,” says Fredrik Holgersson.

“In Fredrik, Braviken gains not only one of our most experienced and analytical people at the helm, but also a skilled leader with the ability to see to that the people around him achieve their full potential,” says Holmen’s incoming President and CEO Henrik Sjölund.

Fredrik Holgersson replaces Rikard Wallin, who will take over responsibility for Holmen Paper’s increasingly important International Sales. Rikard is also taking over responsibility for Market Intelligence.

“My ten years at Braviken have been varied, to put it mildly. We have made major investments and also made necessary cuts, including shutting down one paper machine. It was a tough decision, but it has produced results and put us in a better position for the future. I feel that this is the right time to pass on the baton,” says Rikard.

The changes will apply from 1 April.
