Elisabeth has been CFO of the Agriculture Sector since 2015, and was appointed Acting Head of the Sector during spring 2016, when Johan Andersson left Lantmännen. After a recruitment process that has been going on during the summer and fall, Elisabeth will now be taking on the role as Head of the Agriculture Sector on a permanent basis.
“I am very pleased to announce that Elisabeth takes over the position as Head of the Agriculture Sector. She has done an excellent job with continuing the sector’s development as acting head during the past six months, and the sector has continued to develop positively during her time at the helm. Elisabeth has a strong business focus and extensive experience both from Lantmännen and the Agriculture Sector – and as a leader, both outside and within Lantmännen. I am convinced that Elisabeth is the right person to lead the sector forward,” says Per Olof Nyman, CEO and Group President at Lantmännen.
Elisabeth Ringdahl started her career at Lantmännen in 2003, within the Swecon Group, which today is part of the Machinery Sector. After that, she also had the position as CFO of the Machinery Sector. After two years outside Lantmännen in a role as CFO at Scanacon Group, Elisabeth returned with new experiences to Lantmännen in 2015, this time to the Agriculture Sector.
“We have a strong belief in the future of our sector, which is connected to both positive financial results and a strong development in the market. Over the last few years, we have strengthened our local presence and significantly reduced our costs. That means that we have created a solid foundation for future investments – developing innovative products, offers, and business models for creating competitive Swedish agriculture. I look forward to continuing this work, along with all our co-workers, customers, and owners,” says Elisabeth Ringdahl.
Elisabeth will start her new position as Head of the Agriculture Sector with immediate effect.
