Dometic Group’s new president and CEO Roger Johansson is confident the company can expand its position in the marketplace, despite the difficult global economic situation.
Johansson, who started his new role on November 8, attended a very successful 2012 Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) in support of the Marine Division in November. He also recently toured the Pompano Beach, Florida facility with Dometic Marine President Frank Marciano.
Johansson said: “We have dedicated employees with a lot of ideas on how to even better serve these customers and to grow our business.
“We also have strong owners who are committed to invest smartly in the company for profitable growth.
“So, although the current global economic environment is not as bright as we would like it to be, especially in Europe, I am very optimistic about our position in the marketplace and our ability to retain and expand that position.”
Johansson was previously CEO of BE Group, a publicly listed company on OMX Nasdaq and a leading trading and services group in steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
He is also the former President for Trelleborg Automotive and ex-Vice President for General Motors Europe, responsible for Powertrain operations and, before that, purchasing.
The new Dometic Group CEO holds a Master of Business and Economic Science from the School of Business, Economics and Law at Gothenburg University.
