Daniel Juhlin is leaving his role as CEO of Plantasjen and Plantasjen’s Board member Christer Åberg is taking over as acting CEO until a permanent replacement assumes the role. After the end of this interim assignment, Christer will return to his work as an ordinary Board member of Plantasjen.

“We would like to thank Daniel for his hard work and positive contribution to the company during a challenging period. Board member Christer Åberg will now assume the position of acting CEO.
