Fredrik Meuller steps down as Business Area President of Trelleborg Group
Trelleborg has decided on a number of strategic measures as a consequence of the ongoing review of its offshore operations. A separate press release concerning these measures was published today, November 28, 2017.
As part of the changes at the Trelleborg Offshore & Construction business area, Trelleborg and Fredrik Meuller have jointly decided that Fredrik will leave his position as Business Area President on December 31, 2017. However, he will remain within the Group during a transitional period to assist in the handover. President and CEO Peter Nilsson will become acting Business Area President for Trelleborg Offshore & Construction.
“I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Fredrik for his contribution in several roles within the Trelleborg Group over the past 15 years. He has served as Business Area President for Trelleborg Offshore & Construction during the past five years and was a driving force in the globalization of the business area and the development of the offerings to our customers. Recently, the business area has faced challenging market conditions, which Fredrik has handled in an exemplary manner. I wish Fredrik all the best in the future. I have personally appreciated all of his constructive input and our close collaboration over the years,” says Peter Nilsson, President and CEO of Trelleborg.
“After five years as Business Area President, and another ten years in various positions at Trelleborg, I have decided to leave Trelleborg. I am convinced that the measures being taken within Trelleborg Offshore & Construction will strengthen the business area’s positions, and that the operations will benefit greatly from these when the markets eventually recover. At the same time, I see the need to simplify the organizational structure and have therefore decided to move on to new challenges outside of the Trelleborg Group,” says Fredrik Meuller, Business Area President of Trelleborg Offshore & Construction.
