“I know I speak for many all over Skanska when I extend a warm thank you to Roman Wieczorek for his time in the organization. He is highly respected and appreciated as a leader with strong values and has moreover been instrumental in building up a sound foundation for the Construction business in Central Europe”, says Johan Karlström, CEO and President, Skanska AB.

• Pierre Olofsson, previously Business Unit President for Skanska Sweden takes on the position as Senior Executive Team member with responsibility for Skanska Sweden, Skanska Norway and Skanska Finland.

“I want to welcome Pierre as a Senior Executive Team member. He has during his five years as Business Unit President successfully led the profitable Skanska Sweden operations. Not only delivering a steady profit but has also developed our work in important Sustainability areas such as Ethics, Safety and Diversity and Inclusion positioning Skanska as building for a better society”, says Johan Karlström.

Gunnar Hagman, present Business Development Director and management team member, Skanska Sweden, succeeds Pierre Olofsson as Business Unit President.
