Daniel Peltonen to leave Holmen

Daniel Peltonen, Senior Vice President Paperboard, has decided to leave Holmen to take up a position as President Boliden Smelters. 

“During his more than 20 years at Holmen, Daniel has made an outstanding contribution to the company’s development. I wish him all the best as he moves on to new challenges outside Holmen,” says Henrik Sjölund, President and CEO of Holmen. 

Daniel has worked at Holmen since 1997 and has been Senior Vice President Paperboard since 2017. He will leave Holmen by December 2019 at the latest. The process of recruiting a replacement is now being initiated. 

“Holmen’s premium paperboard is unique, and we have made great progress in developing our business and establishing greater efficiency in the business area. The journey will continue, but without me, as I will take on new exciting challenges at Boliden,” says Daniel Peltonen.
