Anna Ernestam appointed as Acting CEO of Vectura
Anna Ernestam, Vice President and CFO of Vectura, has been appointed as Acting CEO of Vectura with effect from 7 August. The current President and CEO Jan Colliander will leave his post after five successful years of building up Vectura. Anna Ernestam will lead operations in Vectura during the process of integration with Sweco, which is expected to be completed around year-end 2013.
“For the past five years, Jan Colliander has been responsible for guiding Vectura to a leading position in the transport infrastructure sector. This work has been carried out in an exemplary manner and today Vectura offers world-class infrastructure solutions,” says Tomas Carlsson, President and CEO of Sweco.
Sweco acquired Vectura at the beginning of the summer and the merger has created the largest technical consulting company in the Nordic market, with around 9,000 employees and annual sales of approximately SEK 8.8 billion.
“We are now entering a whole new phase in Vectura’s development, and it is therefore natural to pass on leadership of the company,” says Jan Colliander.
