Fredrik Haglund, current head of the Tibnor Denmark business unit, will take up the position of Tibnor President on July 1, 2023. Kimmo Väkiparta, current President, has decided to leave the company at his own request.
Fredrik Haglund has been with Tibnor since 2008, and a member of the management team since 2016. He has led Tibnor Denmark since 2020, as well as managing Tibnor’s parts business and Tibnor Sweden logistics and production before that.
“It is very inspiring to be chosen to lead Tibnor. I look forward to, together with all Tibnor employees, continuing to deliver on our strategy and further strengthening our market position. We have a very strong set-up in all Tibnor countries and this gives a good foundation for further expansion and profitable growth,” says Fredrik Haglund.
Kimmo Väkiparta, current President of Tibnor, has decided to step down at his own request after four successful years: “Working in Tibnor for the past four years has been extremely rewarding and meaningful, thanks to motivated, creative and professional Tibnor employees. It is now time for me to do something totally different. And I am happy to have an excellent successor: Fredrik will take Tibnor towards 2030 and beyond.”
“It gives me great pleasure to announce Fredrik as the next President of Tibnor. Fredrik has extensive experience in Tibnor and has led an impressive transformation and growth in Tibnor Denmark. I am convinced he will lead Tibnor towards continued profitable growth, digitalization and sustainability in the best possible way. Kimmo has successfully developed Tibnor in terms of growth, profitability and business culture. I want to thank Kimmo for his outstanding work for the company,” says Martin Lindqvist, chairman of Tibnor.
Fredrik Haglund will take up his new position on July 1, 2023, and be located at Tibnor HQ in Solna, Sweden.
