Nilfisk has appointed Hans Henrik Lund as the company’s new CEO, effective early August 2017.
Until then, Lars Gjødsbøl, Nilfisk’s executive vice president and head of global operations, will commence the role of acting CEO.
Nilfisk chairman Jens Due Olsen, said: “With the appointment of Hans Henrik Lund as the new CEO of Nilfisk, we have the right profile to develop and grow Nilfisk, to lead the business as an independently listed company and to execute our overall strategy of further consolidating our position as a world leader in the professional cleaning equipment industry.”
Lund takes over from previous CEO Jonas Persson, who has held the role since January 2014.
