Lennart Petersson becomes acting CEO and Head of Assemblin Group
Petter Håkanson will today, 17 October, leave his position as CEO and Head of the Assemblin AB Group. The current CEO of Assemblin VS AB, Lennart Petersson, will take over as acting CEO and Head of Group until recruitment for the position is complete. At the same time, Andreas Aristiadis will take over from Lennart Petersson in the role of CEO of Assemblin VS.
“ I am leaving the role because the board and I have different views on Assemblin’s future strategy as a Group,” says Petter Håkanson. My time at Assemblin was very short, but I would like to thank everyone I worked with for their efforts and wish the company every success in the future”.
A wealth of experience in the installation sector
Lennart Petersson, who is now taking over as acting CEO and Head of the Assemblin Group, has over 25 years of experience in leading positions in the installation sector. He has worked in several different positions in NVS Installation AB (since acquired by another company), and within Assemblin. He was appointed as the CEO of Assemblin VS after Triton acquired the Group in 2015.
“ I’m starting in this role knowing I have a lot of faith in Assemblin – a Group I’ve worked in for quite a long time now. The Group employs 5,000 highly skilled staff within the fields of heating and sanitation, electricity and ventilation at over 100 sites across the Nordic countries. We really are a combination of multidisciplinary Group strength and the personal touch of a local business,” says Lennart Petersson.
Andreas Aristiadis, who is taking over as CEO of Assemblin VS, started his career in the company in 2001 and was appointed deputy CEO on 1 January this year.
“ I have no concerns whatsoever handing over to Andreas, who has a very solid background at Assemblin VS, as a branch manager, a regional manager and, most recently, as deputy CEO. I’m certain that his success will continue into the new role,” says Lennart Petersson.
New recruitment and board reinforcements
The process of recruiting a new CEO and Head of the Assemblin Group is set to begin immediately.
“ Lennart Petersson, our new acting Head of Group, is very experienced and able and will lead us until the recruitment process is complete. We have also added two reinforcements to the Assemblin AB board, members who have a large amount of knowledge and experience from within the construction and installation sector,” Mats Wäppling, chairman of the Assemblin board of directors, tells us.
The new members of the Assemblin board are Leif Gustafsson, Head of the Cramo Group, and Mats Jönsson, former Head of both Assemblin ( Imtech Nordic at that time) and Coor Service Management.
Assemblin is a complete installation and service partner with operations in Sweden, Norway and Finland. With the strength of a multidisciplinary group and the personal presence of a local company, we design, install and maintain technical systems for heating and sanitation, electricity and ventilation in offices, arenas, shopping centres, houses and industrial premises. Our turnover is approximately SEK 8 billion and with more than 5,000 employees in over 100 locations in the Nordic region, we are where you are. For you.
