Permobil will make a significant executive change later this year, with Charlotta Nyberg taking over as the company’s new chief financial officer.
Nyberg will be responsible for the financial management of the group and will play a pivotal role in driving sustainable long-term business growth and success through corporate development and profitability management.
Specifically, group accounting, group finance, corporate development and group IT will report to the CFO.
Nyberg brings 20 years of experience in business finance, building new and emerging businesses and change management.
She will join the company on 1 November from Swedish telecommunications multinational Telia, where she is currently the vice president for corporate control.
She said: “I am delighted to be joining Permobil, a company synonymous with innovation. I am looking forward to working with my new team to help execute on Permobil’s priorities of sustainable growth, product and geographic expansion and continued excellence.”
Bengt Thorsson, CEO of Permobil, said: “Her extensive experience will make an immediate impact as we navigate the current turbulent economic situation and continue to grow the business. We welcome her to the company.”
Prior to Telia, Nyberg held leadership positions at Ericsson and Business Sweden after beginning her career at Accenture.
She will replace Carl Bandhold who is leaving Permobil after more than 10 years to take on a new challenge.
