New managing director for Ponsse AS
The managing director of Ponsse AS, Ponsse’s subsidiary in Norway, is to change. Sigurd Skotte, who has held the position since 2011, will transfer to parent company Ponsse Plc starting from 1 October 2019, where he will work in the development of global sales. Carl-Henrik Hammar, managing director of Ponsse’s subsidiary in Sweden, will be appointed managing director of Ponsse AS. Hammar will also continue as the managing director of Ponsse AB.
“Both of these appointments support our investments in the continuous development of our international network. Sigurd Skotte has a strong vision for the customer-driven development of sales and maintenance services, and Carl-Henrik Hammar’s role in leading our two Nordic subsidiaries helps these companies to work closer together. Both companies will continue as independent entities, while their functions will be developed side-by-side, and they will be engaged in closer cooperation”, says Jarmo Vidgrén, sales and marketing director at Ponsse Plc.
Carl-Henrik Hammar started his career at Ponsse in 2015. He will continue to work in Surahammar, Sweden, and report to Jarmo Vidgrén, Ponsse Plc’s sales and marketing director.
The head office of Ponsse AS, established in 1998, is located in Kongsvinger, Norway. Ponsse AB’s head office is located in Surahammar, and the company is responsible for Swedish markets and Ponsse’s operations in Denmark. The company was established in 1994.
