Stora Enso has appointed Annica Bresky – the current head of its Consumer Board division – as its new CEO, effective from 1 December 2019.
Bresky succeeds Karl-Henrik Sundström, who had announced last month that he was stepping down from his position after five years in the role.
Bresky joined Finland-based packaging and paper manufacturer Stora Enso in 2017, and has previously served as the president and CEO of Iggesund Paperboard AB and as a mill director at BillerudKorsnäs.
Annica Bresky, CEO-designate said: “I am very honoured to have this opportunity. I am looking forward to continuing to build the future of Stora Enso together with our competent teams across the company.
“We are well-positioned to grow with our customers and support their business with sustainable and innovative solutions.
“Together with my Stora Enso colleagues, our customers and our partners all over the world, we will accelerate our efforts as a front runner in combatting global warming.”
Stora Enso’s chair of the board of directors, Jorma Eloranta added: “We are very happy to welcome Annica Bresky into her new position. Annica brings extensive experience of our industry and has a solid business background.
We consider her the most suitable person to continue developing Stora Enso’s strategy and businesses. She has a proven track record of driving growth and operational excellence and has a strong focus on customers and innovations. She is well equipped to lead the transformation of our sustainable renewable materials company.”
