The Ratos-owned construction contractor HENT has recruited Jan Krepp as CEO of its Swedish subsidiary. Jan will focus on strengthening the Swedish organisation in order to increase the company's profitability and respond to growing demand for HENT's services in the Swedish market.
"We needed to strengthen HENT Sverige AB's management team in order to move forward. We have a clear target to increase our sales - and improve our earnings. Until today, the company was run by the management team in Norway, but we have identified a need to appoint a CEO in Sweden. And we have succeeded in doing so with the appointment of Jan Krepp. Jan has the qualifications and commitment we are looking for, and I look forward to welcoming him to the team," says Jan Jahren, CEO of HENT.
Jan Krepp will assume the position immediately.
"Jan Krepp has held various roles in Ratos's business group since 2019 and has achieved outstanding results, including in the role of Acting CEO of Speed Group. I'm pleased to see that HENT was able to fill this key position by recruiting an employee from within Ratos's business group. The recruitment of Jan Krepp is a sign that HENT, like the other companies in Ratos's portfolio, is adopting a proactive approach. Our goal is to significantly increase the company's operating profit in Sweden," says Christian Johansson Gebauer, Head of Business Area Construction & Services at Ratos and Board Chairman of HENT.
HENT has its registered office in Trondheim, Norway, and has been established in the Swedish market since 2016. HENT Sverige had sales of approximately SEK 1.4 billion in 2020 and currently has six active projects across the country, from Kiruna in the North to Malmö in the south.
