In conjunction with the announcement from the Swedish National Debt Office to divest Carnegie Investment Bank AB on 11 February, Mikael Ericson informed the Board of Directors that he is placing his position at their disposal.
Accordingly, the Board has resolved to appoint Niklas Johansson, Head of Asset Management Sweden, as new acting CEO for the Group from 17 February. Niklas Johansson will also resume responsibility for Carnegie’s Swedish operations. Mikael Ericson will remain within the company during a limited period of time to ensure a smooth transition.
“I would like to thank Mikael Ericson for his tremendous efforts during a tough period. Carnegie has experienced major changes in recent times and the company stands stronger and is better equipped today compared to a couple months ago”, says Peter Norman.
“I am very pleased to present Niklas Johansson as new Head of Carnegie. Niklas has extensive industry knowledge and well documented management experience”, says Peter Norman.
