Ms Svenner has wide industrial experience as MD for several international companies, such as Stena Recycling and Atlas Copco.

The current MD, Mr Jos Goris, is very pleased with the choice of his successor: “Monica has extensive experience in leadership and business development within a variety of organizations and industries, particularly within heavy industry.

She has worked at companies such as Volvo Cars, Wicandersand Mölnlycke Health Care and within areas such as research & development, organization and business development.
