The new members, effective from March 2, are José Manuel Sanchez (president surface division), Sami Niiranen (president underground division), Jess Kindler (president parts & service division), Jonas Albertson (president technology & digital division), Goran Popovski (president tools & attachments division), and Nadim Penser (senior vice president human resources).

They join group management team members Helena Hedblom (president and CEO), Anders Lindén (senior vice president controlling and finance (CFO)), Jörgen Ekelöw (senior vice president general counsel), Martin Hjerpe (senior vice president M&A and strategy), Mattias Olsson (senior vice president corporate communications).

Hedblom commented: “The new structure is designed for speed and efficiency and to strengthen customer focus. We keep our focused and decentralised structure, strengthen our focus on technology and digitalisation further, and create a more integrated team where the support functions are closer to the business.”

Epiroc previously had seven divisions, where the presidents reported to a business area president. The new structure has five divisions and the presidents now report directly to the president and CEO. The financial reporting setup will remain with two segments: equipment & service, and tools & attachments.
