Åke has extensive experience from the manufacturing industry. He is strongly operation and business oriented with significant experience in change management of international operations. The Board of Directors is very pleased that Åke has accepted our offer.”
“I’m honored and excited to lead Haldex into a new phase where we will build upon the positive support we have gained from customers during the public offer process,” said Bengtsson.
