Rottneros has named Lennart Eberleh as its new President and Chief Executive Officer. Eberleh, who will join Rottneros no later than October 1, 2016, currently serves as head of the business area Corrugated Solutions for BillerudKorsnäs.

Eberleh has more than 20 years of experience in various management positions within the paper industry, including positions with Stora, Billerud and BillerudKorsnäs. Eberleh has a M.Sc. in Engineering from the Technical University of Braunschweig.

“Many of us have followed Lennart's success over the years, and we are very pleased to have recruited a person who has both substantial expertise in the paper industry as well as solid experience of business acumen,” said Rune Ingvarsson, Chairman of the Board of Rottneros AB.

Per Lundeen, acting President and CEO, added, “Lennart is definitely the right person to continue the work with our long-term industrial plan, Agenda 500, and to develop Rottneros' strategy further. It feels very good to hand over to him.”

Lundeen will continue as CEO until Eberleh takes over the position. Lundeen took office as CEO in November 2014 after serving on the Board of Rottneros AB since 2013.
