After more than seven years as CFO of Clas Ohlson, Göran Melin has notified his intention to leave his position and move on to new challenges outside the company. A recruitment process for a new CFO will therefore be initiated.

"After more than seven fantastic years with Clas Ohlson I have come to the conclusion that it is time to move on to pursue new challenges," says Göran Melin, CFO of Clas Ohlson.

"We have a lot to thank Göran for, not least for his great commitment to developing Clas Ohlson into the well-managed company that it is today. I want to thank him for his contributions all these years and wish him the best of luck in his future career," says Lotta Lyrå, President and CEO of Clas Ohlson.

Göran Melin will continue to fulfil his duties until end of June. A recruitment process to find his replacement is now initiated.
