Renholmen's CEO Resigns – Moves on within the Group

Since spring 2018, Per Jonsson has been the CEO of Renholmen AB. Now he is moving on to a new role within the publicly listed Storskogen Group.

“It has been absolutely fantastic to be part of the journey Renholmen has taken in recent years. Of course, there are mixed feelings about leaving the CEO position, but it is incredibly honorable to be asked to lead the development work in ARAT Group, and that assignment felt very interesting,” says Per Jonsson.

Per Jonsson has been working at Renholmen since 2016 and served as project manager before assuming the CEO position in spring 2018. Under his leadership, the company has increased its number of employees from 38 to 57 and has also increased revenue more than threefold to over 300 million with significantly improved profitability.

He is now moving on to new assignments and will assume the role of CEO in ARAT Group, the conglomerate that Renholmen is part of and is owned by publicly listed Storskogen. In his new role, he will be responsible for further developing the companies within the ARAT Group, which currently includes Renholmen, Almab, AriVislanda, Ingenjörsfirma Gösta Hedlund, and Milltech. Per will become chairman of the board in all the companies.

Storskogen sees further opportunities to develop and create more growth within ARAT. When a CEO for this group was to be appointed, Renholmen’s CEO Per Jonsson was the clear choice.

“Per has industry and business expertise, as well as leadership qualities that we like. He has made this journey at Renholmen, and for us, he was a perfect choice,” says Patrik Klerck, Investment Director Automation at Storskogen.

Per Jonsson has already taken on the new role, and Renholmen will be seeking a replacement. In the meantime, he will remain as CEO until the new replacement has taken over. He will also continue to be involved in the company as chairman of the board.
