Johan Abrahamsson new mill manager at Hallsta
On 1 April, current mill manager Daniel Peltonen will be moving on to become head of business area Iggesund Paperboard. He will be succeeded by Johan Abrahamsson, who will become the new manager of Hallsta Paper Mill.
Johan is a familiar face at Hallsta, with this year marking his 10th anniversary at the mill. He moved from Finland to Sweden in 2007 and joined Hallsta Paper Mill as a trainee. He has worked as a project manager, maintenance manager for electricity/automation, head of the Technology department and most recently head of Operations.
"This is a great example of sound succession planning," explains Nils Ringborg, head of Holmen Paper business area. "Johan has acquired vital experience over his many years at Hallsta, which makes him well equipped to now take over the management of a cutting-edge mill."
