The Board of Directors of Arla Plast AB ("Arla Plast") have reached an agreement with the CEO, Henrik Håkansson, to leave his assignment within the company with immediate effect. The Board of Directors have decided to appoint Christian Krichau, current Production and Technical Manager, as deputy CEO. The recruitment process to find a new permanent CEO will commence immediately.
Henrik Håkansson assumed the position as CEO for Arla Plast in 2018. During his time as CEO, Henrik contributed to the company's development by, among other things, implementing the company's IPO. However, due to lack of consensus on issues relating to the management of the company between the Board and the CEO, the Board makes the assessment that a change of CEO is necessary.
"On behalf of the Board and myself, I would like to thank Henrik for the work he has done," says Kenneth Synnersten, Chairman of the Board.
