Together with management and employees, Jimmi has succeeded in raising the group's financial results to a historic high, and Flügger today has a sustainable growth strategy – both short and long term. I would like to thank Jimmi for this and for having embraced the role of being Sune’s mentor, and in this way having helped Sune to develop the managerial competencies that are necessary for him to be able to fulfill the position as CEO. Jimmi will take on the position as Deputy Chairman of the Board as of April 1, 2021, and I am pleased that we are able to continue our good cooperation and development of Flügger.

“The last few years have not only been an incredibly exciting journey for Flügger, they have also been a journey for me both professionally and personally. It has been both challenging and enriching, but above all I have learned a great deal. I am humbled and grateful for the trust that the board, employees, customers and shareholders have shown me, and the fact that because we as a team have persistently pulled in the same direction Flügger now is in a completely different state and place than just a couple of years ago. Flügger is a fantastic company with a special DNA, deep roots and a great potential for further growth and development. I am pleased that the Board of Directors will continue the ongoing strategy, and I look forward to being a part of the continued journey.”

He has in-depth knowledge of the current growth strategy, the group's DNA and the rest of the management team. Above all, he has the attitude needed to continue the strategy and further develop Flügger, and he is ready to take the next step in his career. Like any young leader, Sune will of course face a steep learning curve, but by virtue of his qualifications and previous achievements inside and outside Flügger, the board believes that Sune both can and will succeed in the task. We therefore look forward to continuing the ongoing strategy with a focus on further acquisitions and sustainable growth together with Sune.”

Together with Jimmi and the rest of the management team, I will spend the next six months preparing myself as best as possible for my future role.”
