As of January 2018 Paul Schrotti will be the new CEO of Lindéngruppen. Paul comes from Axel Johnson AB, where he since 2010 has held the position as Executive Vice President.
"I'm delighted to have recruited Paul Schrotti to take Lindéngruppen to the next level" says Lindéngruppen's owner and chairman Jenny Lindén Urnes. “Paul combines strong leadership with extensive experience from different businesses and governance models. He also has broad experience from working in a values-driven large family business. I’m convinced that Paul will contribute significantly to Lindéngruppen’s development.”
Paul Schrotti has held senior positions in international companies and prior to joining Axel Johnson AB he was a partner at EQT, Director at KPMG Corporate Finance, as well as corporate counsel at Electrolux.
“Lindéngruppen is a strong and long-term industrial owner with a number of world-leading companies in exciting industries. It is an honor to become the CEO of Lindéngruppen and I look forward to head its further development”, says Paul Schrotti.
The recruitment of an external CEO is a natural next step in building Lindéngruppen’s future. The current CEO, Erik Urnes, has after more than eight years as CEO, decided to leave his position and move into a non-executive role as vice chairman of Lindéngruppen.
