Tomas Eliasson, currently the Chief Financia Offices (CFO) at Swedish appliance maker Electrolux, has been appointed Executive Vice President and CFO of Sandvik. Eliasson will also join the company’s Group Executive Management team.
Eliasson will replace Mats Backman, who is joining Autoliv, a maker of automotive safety systems. He will take up the role no later than July 2016.
“Tomas Eliasson has extensive experience from relevant industries and companies,” said Sandvik’s President and CEO, Björn Rosengren. “He will be a strong contributor to Sandvik in the finance areas and he will also take a leading role in driving the further progress of the Sandvik Group in general.”
Eliasson is the third change in the Group Executive Management team since Rosengren took over the company last year after the replacement of Scot Smith by Lars Engström as President of Sandvik Mining and the retirement of Olle Wijk, Head of Group R&D.
