Joakim Landholm, Executive Vice President Transformation, is to leave SAS in August 2015. Joakim Landholm has decided to leave in association with the imminent dissolution of the Transformation Department he has successfully headed. The department will be integrated into the regular line organization.

I would like to extend a warm thank you to Joakim for the enormous efforts he has made and for what he has achieved for SAS,” says Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO of SAS.

Joakim Landholm joined SAS in January 2012 when he was appointed Executive Vice President Commercial.
