Effective October 1, Volvo CE appointed Peter Jordansson who will take up the position on the executive management team (EMT), reporting to president, Melker Jernberg.
With more than 20 years of experience in logistics and transport, Jordansson has worked with some of the biggest names in Sweden including Volvo Group, Scania, and most recently steel company, SSAB. His new role will mark his return to Volvo CE after he previously held a management position at the company. In his new position as SVP, he will promote the needs of the supply chain in the companys strategic discussions.
Jernberg commented: I am really pleased to welcome Peter to the EMT. He has had strong track records of managing the full supply chain in different industries, from operational level to strategic level. The supply chain is a critical part of our overall business and we see a need for the Purchasing function to get more focus by being directly represented in our strategic discussions.
Prior to joining Volvo CE, Jordanssons most recent roles have been at SSAB, where he has been leading its supply chain and purchasing and sourcing development. He will be based at Volvo CEs Gothenburg headquarters when he takes up his position later this year.
