Per Skoglund takes over as the new CEO of FVB Sverige AB on January 1, 2023. He has been the Deputy CEO since 2017 and is succeeding Leif Breitholtz, who will become Senior Advisor with responsibility for foreign operations at FVB.
Per Skoglund has a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology and has many years of experience in the energy sector. Per has worked at FVB since 2003, mainly as head of the Stockholm office. As CEO, he will work at the head office in Västerås.
“It feels fun and exciting to be the CEO of FVB. There have only been three CEOs in the roughly 50-year history of the company, so it’s an honor to be taking over the position,” says Per Skoglund.
The Board of Directors at FVB is very pleased with the recruitment.
“FVB is an employee-owned company and so we wanted an internal recruitment for the position of CEO. Per Skoglund has extensive experience in the energy sector and knows the company. He is also well-known by our customers and is very professional in his role,” says Lars Andersson, Chair of the Board at FVB Sverige AB.
Per Skoglund is taking over the position of CEO during a turbulent time in the world.
“At FVB, the energy issue has always been in focus, and now it is in focus throughout society. This means great opportunities for FVB, as we have many of the skills required for the transition that is now underway. This is very much the right time for our services.”
From the beginning, FVB has been very strong in district heating and was the company that introduced district cooling in Sweden. FVB also works with energy issues relating to Industry, Buildings and Properties, Electricity and Automation, and Water and Sewage. The company currently has 150 employees with offices in ten locations in Sweden.
“We are continuing our strategy of organic growth within our current business areas. We also want to expand within water and sewage, which will require major investments in the future,” Per Skoglund concludes.
