ViaCon Group a standalone company and new CEO

A year ago, ViaCon and the Saferoad Group were taken off the Oslo stock exchange by FSN Capital. FSN Capital is the leading Northern European private equity investment firm focused on the middle-market segment. ViaCon is a market leader in a growing industry, with an impressive track record in product quality and innovation, recognized by setting a Guinness World Record earlier this year. ViaCon has accomplished a lot and is well positioned for future growth. As part of the next phase of growth, ViaCon will regain its independence as a separate company, and no longer be part of the Saferoad Group. FSN Capital will continue as majority shareholder and is committed to supporting the ViaCon Group going forward. Stefan Nordström, who is the current chairman of the ViaCon Group, will take over as CEO from Nov 1 this year. Mr Nordström is a Mechanical Engineer M.Sc. from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden and holds an MBA from Stockholm School of Economics and was previously the CEO of TitanX, Senior Vice President at AB Volvo and ABB. Stefan brings 30 years of industrial experience and the skillset that the ViaCon Group needs for next phase of growth. The current CEO of ViaCon, Leszek Janusz, has made significant contributions to ViaCon over many years and for that we are very grateful. From Nov 1 this year, Leszeks new role is as Executive Advisor to the CEO with the purpose to further develop our external relations with partners, governmental institutions and industry associations. We are very excited about the next phase of profitable growth for ViaCon and we are convinced that together with our external partners we will realize the good potentials in the company.
