He succeeds Gunnar Haglund, who after more than 25 years of Ahlsell chooses to retire. Kennet assumes his position in the spring of 2014.
Kennet's background is from equivalent positions within Indutrade AB, and before that within Addtec AB and the Bergman & Beving Group.
It is a pleasure to welcome a person with extensive knowledge of a trading company’s everyday business and with massive experience in acquisitions, one of Ahlsell’s trademarks.
Meanwhile, it is with some sadness I thank Gunnar for his invaluable contributions in the 25 years we worked together, says CEO Göran Näsholm in a comment.
