Håkan Folin, Executive Vice President and CFO at SSAB, has decided to leave SSAB to take up the position of Executive Vice President and CFO at Epiroc.

Håkan Folin has served as Executive Vice President and CFO and been a member of SSAB’s Group Executive Committee since 2013. Prior to this, he held a number of important roles globally at SSAB.

“After 15 years at the company, it’s time for me to move on. Today, SSAB has a unique position on the global high-strength steel market, two very strong home markets and we are also leading the way in the green transition. I’ve had the privilege of being on a fantastic journey at SSAB and of working with many dedicated and experienced colleagues,” said Håkan Folin.

“Håkan has had a long career with SSAB. He has played an important role in the development and execution of the company’s strategy and in building a financially strong SSAB. Håkan has also been involved in acquisitions such as IPSCO and Rautaruukki. I would like to thank Håkan for his contribution to the company and wish him well in his new job,” said Martin Lindqvist, President and CEO at SSAB.

Håkan Folin will leave SSAB towards the end of 2021 and an immediate start will be made with the recruiting process to find his successor.
