Per Skoglund is taking over the position of CEO during a turbulent time in the world, particularly in the energy sector.

”This is the right time for our services. I feel strongly about the company and want to continue to develop our current business offerings,” says Per Skoglund.

From the beginning, FVB has been very strong in district heating and was the company that introduced district cooling in Sweden. FVB also works with energy issues relating to Industry, Buildings and Properties, Electricity and Automation, and Water and Sewage. The company currently has 150 employees with offices in ten locations in Sweden.

“We are continuing our strategy of organic growth within our current business offerings. We also want to expand within water and sewage, which will require major investments in the future,” continues Per Skoglund.

Per Skoglund is the fourth CEO in FVB’s 50-year history. He has a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology and has many years of experience in the energy sector. Per has worked at FVB since 2003, mainly as head of the Stockholm office. As CEO, he will work at the head office in Västerås.

“We are very pleased with this recruitment. FVB is an employee-owned company and so we wanted an internal recruitment for the position of CEO. Per Skoglund has extensive experience in the energy sector and knows the company. He is also well-known by our customers and is very professional in his role,” says Lars Andersson, Chair of the Board at FVB Sverige AB.

Per Skoglund is succeeding Leif Breitholtz, who has been CEO for 17 years. Leif Breitholtz will stay with FVB as Senior Advisor with responsibility for foreign operations.
