Arctic Paper Group appoints new MD for Scandinavian sales force.

In conjunction with the intended new Scandinavian set-up Arctic Paper Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Leif-Arne Karlsen as new Managing Director for Arctic Paper Sweden. Leif-Arne will have responsibility for all of the groups Scandinavian sales. This is executed as of the 23rd of September.

As part of the on-going restructuring program of Arctic Paper, Leif-Arne Karlsen has been appointed Managing Director of Arctic Paper Sweden with responsibility for all sales operations in Scandinavia. Leif-Arne has been a successful Managing Director of the combined Danish/Norwegian operation, and prior to that also held the position as Sales Director of Arctic Paper Sweden. The new role will now include Sweden – and the target is to develop the synergies and the customer advantages of the new set-up.

Simultaneously former Managing Director of Arctic Paper Sweden – Lars Eriksson – will leave his position. After four years as head of the Swedish operations we want to wish Lars the best success in his future enterprises.

Leif-Arne Karlsen comments: “After twelve exciting and successful years at Arctic Paper, I am looking forward to executing our new strategy in Scandinavia. I trust my experience and positive approach, together with the professional sales organisation of Arctic Paper, will create a strong sales team. Working closely together, our aim is to deliver increased customer benefits to the market in an efficient and productive way.”
