Rottneros appoints Monica Pasanen as new CFO

Rottneros has appointed Monica Pasanen as new CFO of the Group. She succeeds Krister Lindgren, who has been interim CFO since 2013.

Monica Pasanen most recently comes from Stora Enso, where she is responsible for Supply Chain within the business unit Consumer Board. She has more than 20 years of experience in various management positions in both the financial and the sales & marketing area of Stora Enso and Bulleh Shah Packaging (Pvt) Ltd Pakistan. She will take office no later than 1 February 2017. Krister Lindgren will continue as CFO until then.

It is very gratifying that Monica Pasanen has accepted the post as CFO of Rottneros. She is a strong leader with an extensive experience in international forestry products. With her background in both finance and sales & marketing Monica will become a key figure in developing Rottneros within the framework of our growth strategy. Simultaneously, I would like to thank Krister Lindgren for the important work he has done for Rottneros since he took office in 2013, says Lennart Eberleh president and CEO of Rottneros.
