“I’m extremely pleased to welcome someone of Katarina’s calibre to our global team,” said Lars Petersson, Group President and CEO of Hempel.

“We’re an ambitious company on a strong growth curve. Our target is to double Hempel in five years, and we remain on track. We want to lead the industry in market-driven innovation, sustainability and customer focus. As Chief Operating Officer, Katarina will play a significant part in this, and I’m very much looking forward to working with her.”

Previously, Lindström worked for more than 20 years at Volvo Group (Gothenburg, Sweden) where she held a series of global senior executive positions within both operations and product management.
