Swedish cutting tools manufacturer Sandvik recently announced it has appointed a new Chief Digital Officer.

Sofia Sirvell will serve as CDO for the Sandvik Group and new member of the Group Executive Management as of March 1. Sirvell is currently Sandvik’s Group Chief Information Officer (CIO), a position she has held since 2021.

Before working at Sandvik, she was the Deputy CTO at H&M Group, where she helped lead the fashion company’s digital transformation, Sandvik said.

In her new role, Sirvell is expected to continue Sandvik’s digital transformation and support collaboration to “enhance digital capabilities and IT,” the company said. She will continue to lead the global Group IT organization and report to Stefan Widing, Sandvik’s CEO and President.

“There is a strong strategic focus to deliver on the digital transformation of Sandvik, which entails both developing our digital customer offering and strengthening the digital capabilities across Sandvik,” Widing said. “The global support function for IT plays a key role in driving this shift. The addition of Sofia Sirvell to the Group Executive Management is a natural and positive step, and I am confident that she with her competence will contribute in an excellent way to the team.”
