Hydroscand Group appoints new CEO

2017-08-25

About a year ago, Mats Nilsson informed Hydroscand's Board of Directors that he wanted to resign. Mats were employed by the company in 1995 and were appointed in 2002 as Managing Director of Hydroscand AB. In 2012 he assumed the position as President and CEO of Hydroscand Group, succeeding Hydroscand AB’s founder and owner, Björn Holmström. The Board has now appointed a new CEO.

During Mats Nilsson’s leadership, the Group has continued to show strong growth with establishments in new countries and the development of the business concept, including the Hose Express service vans. The Board and the Holmström family want to thank Mats for a great effort and wish him the best of luck in the future.

Following a thorough search process, the Board has decided to employ Marcus Larsson as President and CEO of Hydroscand Group. Marcus Larsson is currently Executive Vice President of Mekonomen Group with responsibility for marketing, business development and purchasing. Marcus Larsson will take office on November 7th.

"We are really pleased that Marcus Larsson chooses a future in Hydroscand. His broad experience from the Mekonomen Group comes in handy with us, and I personally look forward to work with Marcus “, says Mats Lönnqvist, Hydroscand's newly elected Chairman of the Board.
