Report this content

Vattenfall strengthens its communication Vattenfall is changing its communication operations within the organisation in order to meet the new demands posed by the Group's development from a Swedish to a European energy company, a process in which communication plays a central role. The Group's overall communications work will be led by the Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications, Knut Leman. At the Group level, a number of functions will be integrated and form a new unit for market communication. This unit will be headed by Stefan Nerpin, who will thus have overall responsibility for Vattenfall's market communication on all markets. Stefan Nerpin comes to Vattenfall from the consulting company Burson & Marsteller. Martin May, who is currently head of Media Relations for Vattenfall Europe in Germany, will take up the post as head of Group Media Relations on 1 March. Other heads of units within Group function Communications will be Arne Mogren, Public Affairs, Margareta Arvidsson, Internal Communications and Klaus Aurich, Investor Relations. The new organisation means that on its main markets, i.e. Sweden, Germany, Poland and Finland, Vattenfall will have communications directors that have an overall national responsibility for the communication of all business units on the market concerned. Each national unit will reflect the organisation of the central Group unit. Per Larhed will be the head of Communications in Sweden. He comes to Vattenfall from the consulting company GCI Rinfo and was previously Director of Communications for KF. Marie Nylin will be responsible for Market Communication, while Karl-Erik Olsson will be responsible for Media Relations and Nils Andersson responsible for Public Affairs. The post of head of Internal Communications is vacant. The corresponding units have already been set up in the other countries. In Germany, Johannes Altmeppen is head of Communications. In Finland, Håkan Nylund is head of Communications and also heads the units for Media Relations and Public Affairs. The head of Communications in Poland is Piotr Kedzierski. Marcel Galjée is responsible for communications in the Netherlands, while Pernilla Liisberg has this responsibility in Denmark. "It is my hope that the new organisation and an improved communication process throughout the Group will make a major contribution to the effort to realise our vision of becoming a leading European energy company," says Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications, Knut Leman.
