Effective next 1 April, Jonas Rickberg is appointed chief financial officer of Scania, reporting to Christian Levin, president and CEO. Rickberg is currently VP finance and business control, sales and marketing at the truck maker.
Since Rickberg started at Scania in 2005, he has held positions in finance, business control and services within the areas of research and development, production and logistics, commercial operations, dealerships and sales and marketing. He took up his current position in 2017.
“Rickberg has a broad experience from basically all parts of our operations and there is no more well-rounded and business oriented profile to lead the finance element of the transformation of Scania,” said Levin. “Perhaps even more importantly though, his solid knowledge of flow-oriented operations and new business models – both key elements going forward – will add a lot of value for the company.”
Rickberg succeeds Johan Haeggman, Scania’s CFO since 2015, who assumes the role as head of Traton Financial Services, a dedicate captive financial services branch within the group.
