Change in Investor Relations at Orkla ASA
Mattias Orrenius will step down from his position as Senior Vice President Investor Relations in the first half of 2018 to take up a new role at Orkla.
Mattias Orrenius has been appointed Chief Financial Officer at Orkla Confectionery & Snacks Sverige. The date on which he will take up this position has yet to be determined, and he will remain head of Investor Relations in early 2018 until his successor is in place.
Orrenius has headed the Investor Relations department since 1 June 2015. He has been employed at Orkla since 2009 and has substantial experience from finance positions in various parts of the Group. Orrenius has a Master in Business Administration from the School of Economics and Management at Lund University in Sweden.
“Mattias has done an excellent job as SVP Investor Relations. We would have liked to see him continue in this position. However, we know that he will also make a valuable contribution to growth and value creation in Orkla as CFO at Orkla Confectionery & Snacks Sverige,” says Jens Staff, Orkla Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
The process of recruiting a successor for the position of SVP Investor Relations will now commence.
