New CEO in Resurs Bank

The CEO of Resurs Bank, Kenneth Nilsson, has decided to leave the company and will step down from his duties by summer. He will be succeeded by Nils Carlsson, who most recently comes from the position as CEO of Fortnox AB.

After 32 years in the Resurs Group, whereof 27 years managing a subsidiary and the past 8 years also as Group CEO, Kenneth Nilsson has decided to end his employment. During these years, the company has grown from a small company with 10 employees and a year-end result of 1 million SEK, to a Nordic listed Group that has long passed a year-end result of 1 billion SEK.

-   I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished together at Resurs during these years. I feel both humble and grateful for having had the opportunity to be part of such a growth journey. But nothing lasts forever. The Board has done an excellent job in recruiting my successor and I am convinced that Nils, together with our strong leadership team, will take Resurs to new successes, says Kenneth Nilsson, CEO, Resurs Bank.

The change of CEO will take place in a controlled manner by summer. Nils most recently comes from the position as CEO of Fortnox AB and previous positions include CEO of Electrolux Sweden. He brings with him a long and solid experience of product and business development as well as B2B sales of digital services and products.

-   Nils’ strong experience of business development and sales in combination with his ability to create long-term sustainable growth, is well aligned with Resurs’ strategy and future needs. We look forward to continuing to develop Resurs with Nils at the helm. Also, we thank Kenneth for his long and successful leadership that has built Resurs to the outstanding company it is today. We are happy that Kenneth has accepted a position in our holding company SIBA Invest and will continue to be available for the company, says Martin Bengtsson, main owner and Chairman of the Board, Resurs Holding.
