Changes Within Saab’s Group Management

Gunnar Wieslander is leaving Saab after four years and the position as head of Saab business area Kockums.

Since Saab took over the operations in Malmö and Karlskrona, Swedish military shipbuilding capacity has been rebuilt and consequently Saab has established a strong market position. As the business now enters into a significant production phase, Saab's President and CEO Micael Johansson and Gunnar Wieslander agree that a new leadership is needed.

Gunnar Wieslander leaves the role as head of business area Kockums and Saab’s Group Management today, but is at Saab's disposal for a transitional period.

Recruitment of a replacement has begun.
