Kongsberg, May 28, 2024: Kongsberg Automotive (KA) has appointed Christian Johansson as new CFO, effective June 3, 2024. He succeeds Frank Heffter, who has decided to leave KA to pursue opportunities outside the organization.

Johansson has over 30 years of extensive international experience in global industrial and automotive companies, including over a decade-long senior leadership role at Volvo Group as the CFO of Volvo Trucks.

Johansson is currently the interim Group CFO of Colmec Group and recently served as Group CFO for Lantmännen, SKF Group, and Gunnebo. He holds an MBA from Stockholm University and an AMP from INSEAD.
