On May 25, Swedish bearings manufacturer SKF announced three new appointments in its SKF Group Management, including a new position created to drive strategic sales and portfolio management.
SKF announced the appointments of David Johansson as President of Industrial Region for Europe, Middle East and Africa; Kerstin Enochsson as President of Automotive; and Hans Landin as Senior Vice President of Group Commercial Excellence Bearings.
“To reach our potential, we need to increase our commercial capabilities,” said Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO. “These changes in the Group Management team will add a lot of industry experience and new perspectives that will make us stronger as a team.”
Landin will join SKF in August. Johansson, currently President of Automotive at SKF, will succeed the interim President for Industrial Region EMEA, Aldo Cedrone, also in August. Enochsson is replacing Johansson, SKF said.
“This is another important milestone in our journey,” Gustafson said in a news release. “I’m really looking forward to working together. I would also like to thank Aldo for his contribution to the development of our industrial operations in EMEA. Aldo will continue driving prioritized projects for the Group, including our important footprint transformation.”
