Head of Arla’s South East Asian business, Patrik Hansson, is to return to Sweden as the new head of Arla’s Swedish business from 1 November. He will take over from Henri de Sauvage who announced he is leaving Arla to pursue external opportunities.

Earlier this year, Henri de Sauvage announced that he would leave Arla towards the end of the year to pursue external opportunities and a process began to find his successor. Henri has agreed to stay connected to Arla as an external strategic advisor to develop Arla’s Foodservice business in Europe.

“Henri has done an excellent job for Arla both in Sweden and at Group level. I would have liked for him to have continued in his current role. Henri has, however, chosen to move on. Therefore, I am particularly pleased that he has agreed to continue to be connected to Arla and work with us to further develop our Foodservice business in Europe,” says Peder Tuborgh, CEO of Arla Foods.

The new head of Arla’s Swedish business has a lot to offer in terms of skills and experience.

Patrik Hansson has a thorough understanding of the Swedish market and knows Arla’s strengths and challenges. He joined Arla Sweden in 2011 with responsibility for the cheese, butter and fruit drinks business in Sweden. Prior to this Patrik had close to 20 years’ experience in marketing, sales and finance in international fast moving consumer goods companies. In 2015, Patrik was appointed head of Arla’s business in South East Asia where he has made SEA one of Arla’s fastest growing regions globally.

“It will be great to return back to the fantastic organisation in Sweden and lead the future development of our consumer and customer offerings. Arla is a great company that has gone through tough times lately. I am convinced our natural healthy products, together with the cooperative model, are a winning recipe with tomorrow’s consumers,” says Patrik Hansson.

A process to find Patrik Hanson’s replacement has been initiated.
