Executive Changes at Arla Foods

Executive Changes at Arla Foods

Arla Foods is making changes to its senior management team and to its business group structure in order to shorten the decision making process and to help advance its development strategy aimed at reaching an annual turnover of DKr75 billion by 2015.

 

Arla’s executive management group (EMG), consisting of nine people, will undergo some significant changes as of October 1st. Two members will withdraw, while two new members will be added.

 

Arla’s core markets of Sweden and Denmark are to be treated as separate business units instead of being joined in one Nordic business group (Consumer Nordic). The respective heads of the new Sweden and Denmark business units will each now be assigned a seat on the EMG alongside the third major core market, the  UK. Between them, the three markets account for close to two-thirds of Arla’s turnover.

 

”The other members of the EMG will have a more direct dialogue with the leadership in Sweden and Denmark concerning the implementation of the strategy, and the two country managers will be able to influence important decisions that the EMG makes for the entire group. This will result in a better balance in the overall organisation and offer new perspectives for our strategic considerations,” explains Arla’s chief executive, Peder Tuborgh.

 

The two new business groups will be known as Consumer Sweden headed up by Christer Aberg, and Consumer Denmark headed up by Peter Giortz Carlsen.

 

The changes reflect the decision of two members to retire from the EMG – vice chief executive Andreas Lundby and Hans Ake Hammarstrom, executive vice president with responsibility for Consumer Nordic.
