"I look forward to continuing to focus on Ratos's development, and would like to extend my sincere thanks to Mikael Norlander and Lars Johansson, who have both made a major contribution during their time at Ratos. During his many years at the company, Mikael carried out important work in several of our portfolio companies, including the successful development and listing of Arcus, the sale of Haglöfs and the recent transformation of Bisnode. As Acting CEO of Ratos, Lars initiated the restructuring that is now being carried out and has played a pivotal role in the changes to our company portfolio in recent years," says Ratos's CEO Jonas Wiström.
