Lars Idermark will soon step down as Södra's President and CEO. Södra has now appointed Peter Karlsson as Interim President.

Södra has appointed Peter Karlsson as Interim President as from 20 February. He will take over from the current President and CEO Lars Idermark until a successor is found, Södra said. Mr Idermark has been heading the group for seven years and recently informed the Board that he will be leaving the company.

Mr Karlsson is currently Södra's CFO and will reportedly combine his position with the role of Interim President. He has previously served as Business Controller for the Södra Group and he was also responsible for the changes to Södra’s involvement in the Interiör segment.

“Södra is in the midst of an exciting phase with its sights set on the future. I am looking forward to helping lay the foundation for the priorities defined in the new Group strategy. They include continued investments and expansion of our core business, the processing of products and residual streams, digitisation and the development of family forestry,” said Mr Karlsson.
