Current CFO Tommy Åstrand appointed as new CEO of SLP – the nomination committee proposes Peter Strand as executive vice chairman

The nomination committee proposes Peter Strand as the new executive vice chairman of the Board as of the Annual General Meeting. As executive vice chairman, Peter Strand will, in addition to his board assignment, and as an employee of the company as transaction and strategy manager, have a particular focus on property acquisitions and assist the Board and management in strategic matters. Tommy Åstrand, current CFO for SLP, will succeed Peter Strand as CEO after the Annual General Meeting on April 26, and Matilda Olsson, current finance director, will simultaneously take over as CFO.

The group management will therefore consist of Tommy Åstrand, as CEO, Matilda Olsson, as CFO, and Christian Berglund, as COO.

”Peter has, as one of the founders and principal owners of the company, together with me for roughly four years persistently developed the operations with an organisation characterized by high competence and great commitment. This work now facilities the completion of the succession with Tommy and Matilda. Peter is thereby, in his new role, able to focus on strategic issues and transactions, which are his passions. This ensures that we continue to develop the company and our colleagues, and thereby create shareholder value”, says the chairman of the board Erik Selin.

Tommy Åstrand, who assumes the position as new CEO after the Annual General Meeting, has held the position as CFO for SLP since 2020. Tommy has many years of experience from listed property companies and has been the CFO of, among others, Victoria Park AB, Hembla AB and Tribona AB.

The fact that Tommy, whom I have worked with for a very long time in three different listed property companies, assumes the role as new CEO, facilitates a continuity for SLP and ensures continued growth in accordance with our laid strategies. I am convinced that Tommy, together with Christian, who has been with the company since its foundations and has worked with logistics properties in leading positions for 15 years, will continue to develop the company in an excellent manner. With that certainty I can now, in my new role, focus on transactions and the strategic development of the company”, says the present CEO Peter Strand.

Matilda Olsson, who began her employment with the company in 2020, will assume the position as new CFO after the Annual General Meeting and is presently finance director. Matilda has, among other experiences, been the project manager for the initial public offering of SLP on Nasdaq Stockholm during spring 2022. She has previously been employed as a management consultant at EY.

”I’m certainty looking forward to my new role as CEO. Together with all the  other colleagues I have had the satisfaction of participating in building the company and I am well acquainted with our business models and routines. I am proud that we have succeeded in attracting young, competent and committed colleagues, and I look forward to continue to develop the company alongside them. It is satisfying to be able to continue to work alongside Peter in our new roles and I am also glad that we have been able to appoint my successor internally”, says the acceding CEO Tommy Åstrand.
