Nynas appoint Johan Andersson as vice-president group strategy and sustainable development
AS a sign of Nynas’ intensified ambitions, Johan Andersson has been appointed to the combined position of vice-president group strategy and sustainable development.
For the past three years, Mr Andersson (pictured) was chief executive officer of the national oil industry association in Sweden, Drivkraft Sverige, where he launched a roadmap for climate-neutral competitiveness for the industry, restructured the industry association and repositioned it as an organization for innovative and sustainable mobility.
Prior to this, he held several other senior global leadership roles during 19 years within the specialty oil segment at BP, and before that at BASF. In recent years his focus has been on current pressing challenges, where the oil industry needs a balanced approach to societal demands, competitive forces, and the need to create sustainable solutions.
Bo Askvik, Nynas president and chief executive officer, said: ‘For Nynas, strategy and sustainability are closely linked together, and we are now strengthening our organization with the experience Johan brings to intensify our work in these areas. I am very pleased to welcome him as a member of the executive team and to be part of our journey going forward.’
