As part of the new organizational structure for Sandvik, ZZ Zhang, currently Executive Vice President and Head of Emerging Markets, will leave his assignment as member of the Group Executive Management team. The change reflects our intention to have all markets represented through the Business Areas and Product Areas, and not through country.
ZZ Zhang, who has been a member of the management team since 2014, will continue in his role as Country Manager for Sandvik China Holding Co. Ltd. and Group Management Representative for the Asia Pacific countries, reporting to Björn Rosengren, President and CEO for Sandvik.
"I would like to thank ZZ Zhang for his dedicated work in the Group Executive Management and at the same time underline that our focus on China and the region will remain strong. To maintain and develop our customer relations and offerings for the Chinese market through our Business Areas and Product Areas will be a key priority", says Björn Rosengren, President and CEO for Sandvik.
The change will be effective 1 July, 2016.
