ÅF: Johan Olsson - new manager for Systems Division
Johan Olsson has been appointed as the new manager for the ÅF Group's Systems Division (IT & Product development). He will take up his new position on latest the 7th of June 2005.
Johan Olsson, born in 1956, is an engineering graduate of the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and comes to the ÅF Group from HiQ International. Johan started work with HiQ in 1995, where he has served as a member of the senior management team since 1999. He has had operational responsibility managing business areas and HiQ subsidiaries (most recently for HiQ Skåne during its growth phase in 2003 and 2004), and joins the ÅF Group from his current position as manager for business development within the HiQ organisation.
From 1983 to 1995 Johan was employed by Ericsson in a number of managerial positions within Ericsson's research & development operations, both in Sweden and abroad.
"I am convinced that Johan is the right person to pilot Systems back towards good levels of profitability and growth," comments ÅF President and CEO Jonas Wiström (acting divisional manager for Systems since January 2005). "Johan has a track record of success in managerial positions and, over a career spanning almost 25 years in the IT and telecommunications industry, he has demonstrated considerable aptitude for creating long-term business relationships."
