Daniel Troedsson leaves post at CEO for Alelion Energy Systems
2019-08-29 - Alelion Energy Systems AB
The decision was made by the board of Alelion Energy Systems AB to replace Daniel Troedsson as CEO for Alelion Energy Systems AB. Daniel Troedsson will leave the company immediately and until his successor is appointed Åsa Nordström, marketing manager for the company will be acting CEO.
This decision was taken against the background of tough changes that have taken place in recent years in the truck market and that have led to a dramatic drop in Alelion’s sales and result as the major truck manufacturers have increasingly chosen to start producing their own lithium-ion batteries.
“Daniel has done an excellent job building up Alelion and during his time here he has both seen the company listed on the stock exchange and established contracts with some of the world’s biggest truck manufacturers,” says Chairman of the Board, Jan Forsberg. “There continue to be very great opportunities in lithium-ion technology but the change that has taken place in the truck market demands an adjustment in the company strategy and operations and the board is of the opinion that this is best carried out by a new CEO.”
Regarding the development of the company during the year please refer to the six month report (Swedish) published to-day.
