Johan Forssell new President and CEO of Investor from the Annual General Meeting 2015

Investor’s Board of Directors has appointed Johan Forssell as new President and CEO as of May 12, 2015. In line with this, Investor now takes another step to evolve its model. To clarify the ownership in the listed investments and add additional wholly-owned subsidiaries, a new division will be established. Investor’s organization will thereby consist of two clear divisions – one focusing on active ownership in listed core investments and one focusing on the development and expansion of the portfolio of wholly-owned subsidiaries.
