Tomas Stålnert new Managing Director for Rimaster AB

Tomas Stålnert has been appointed Managing Director and Group CEO for Swedish engineering group Rimaster AB as of Jan 1, 2015. Jan-Olof Andersson, currently Managing Director and Group CEO, will assume the role of working assistant chairman of the board with an explicit focus on i.e. marketing and business development.

- Tomas has had various management positions in Sweden as well as internationally and has been with Rimaster since early 2009. His experience, personal abilities and general business knowledge makes him a very competent successor to Jan-Olof Andersson says Per Carlsson, Rimaster chairman and principal owner.


- Rimaster is today a company that stands firmly on multiple legs, and has seen a tremendous growth under the leadership of Jan-Olof Andersson, hence the decision to appoint Tomas Stålnert as his successor is a result of very thorough process and has been made jointly between Jan-Olof Andersson and myself, Per Carlsson concludes.


- This is a joy as much as an honour, says Tomas Stålnert. Having had management positions in various Rimaster Group companies since March 2009, I am looking forward to lead the continued development of the Rimaster Group.


- To me, it’s about time to move-on, says current Managing Director Jan-Olof Andersson. I have been leading Rimaster since 2003 and it has been a wonderful, exciting journey. We have gone from being a strong local supplier of e.g. harnesses to be a respected international industrial partner.


- I will in my new role as working assistant chairman of the board focus on some strategic business areas, e.g. business development and I will also have time to work actively with other board appointments as well as with Regenten Fastighets AB, the real estate company owned jointly by myself and Per Carlsson, Jan-Olof Andersson summarizes.
