Fredrik Ramén new CEO at LEKAB

Fredrik Ramén has been appointed new CEO of LEKAB Communication Systems AB. He comes most recently from the role of chairman of the board and is the principal owner of the same company.

Fredrik, who has a master's degree in electrical engineering at KTH and a master's degree in economics from Stockholm University, has long and broad experience from leading positions within the Electrolux Group in Stockholm, Singapore and Brussels. Among other things, Fredrik was manager for seven years of Electrolux's operations in East Asia and division manager for four years for 'product line DishCare'.

”I look forward to leading LEKAB on our continued growth journey. LEKAB has a strong position in the Nordics, which forms a stable base for future growth. LEKAB's vision is to be the Nordic region's largest company in Business Messaging, offering business customers expert knowledge, inspiration and tools to succeed with 'omnichannel messaging' with SMS and Rich SMS in the digital customer journey".

"In addition to SMS, we want to provide rich messaging channels and enable real-time customer conversations. Customers don't want to wait days for a response - they often need help immediately. Companies can also use messaging to speed up communication and processes internally. Mobile messaging lets you get the recipient's attention and answer immediately. We've come a long way, and LEKAB has a bright future. Now, I'm looking forward to speeding up our efforts with my colleagues," says Fredrik Ramén.

In connection with the organisational change, LEKAB's long-standing CEO Pekka Ollila is retiring.

"We want to thank Pekka Ollila for his commitment - a total of 24 years, 17 years as CEO of LEKAB. Under his leadership, the company's turnover has grown from SEK 47 MSEK in 2017 to 200 MSEK in 2022," says Fredrik Ramén.

Pekka Ollila remains a board member in LEKAB's parent company.
