Jon Erik Engeset, president and CEO of SafeRoad, has resigned. Saferoad is a Nordic Capital portfolio company. Engeset will leave SafeRoad with effect from July 1st 2013.
SafeRoad has over the last years made several add-on acquisitions abroad, which have led to a subsequent build-up of head office functions in Oslo. Following this, Jon Erik Engeset, the President and CEO of SafeRoad, has had to commute between Ørsta and Oslo on a weekly basis. For private reasons, he has now decided to seek new opportunities closer to his home.
Engeset was appointed CEO of Ørsta Group in 2002, which was merged with Euroskilt Group and renamed SafeRoad in 2007. Under his management, the group has experienced strong growth and organizational development, and SafeRoad is today the leading company in Europe within its field.
Jon Erik Engeset will leave SafeRoad with effect from July 1st 2013. A process to recruit his successor has been initiated.
“On behalf of the Board I thank Jon Erik for his efforts and contributions over the last 11 years and wish him all the best for the future”, says Johan Ek, Chairman of the Board, SafeRoad Group
