"Cecilia has been a highly appreciated colleague and during her 17
years in the leadership team she has contributed invaluably to the
shaping of the Group as it is today through a long series of
acquisitions, divestitures and reorganizations. All those who have
had the opportunity to work with Cecilia will agree that she will be
truly missed," said Jonas Samuelson, President and CEO. "We wish her
all the best for the future."

team," Samuelson said.
