The Board of Directors and Johan Lindgren have mutually agreed that he will
leave his position as CEO of Eniro. Following the completed transformation from
printed to digital media, such as online and mobile services, Eniro is moving
into the next phase of its development. This shift has entailed extensive cost
-cutting and a lower level of debt. The mutual opinion is that Eniro needs new
leadership with new energy and experience to take the company into growth.
The Board of Directors of Eniro AB has appointed Stefan Kercza, currently
President of Eniro Denmark and acting President of eniro.se, as acting President
and CEO of the company. The Board is of the opinion that Stefan Kercza, with his
experience from returning Eniro Denmark to growth, is well-suited to bring about
change at Eniro ahead of its next phase – the phase of growth.
“Eniro’s board and management extend a welcome to Stefan Kercza as acting CEO of
Eniro. Stefan has demonstrated impressive work with growth in Denmark and will
bring this valuable experience to the Group level until a permanent CEO can be
presented,” comments Lars-Johan Jarnheimer, Chairman of Eniro.
“We thank Johan Lindgren for his contribution to Eniro. The past four years
under Johan’s leadership have been dominated by the work on bringing about the
initial, successful transformation from printed to digital media along with a
focus on user and customer benefit. Through extensive cost-cutting the company
has maintained a strong cash flow, which has enabled Eniro to considerably lower
its level of debt,” concludes Lars-Johan Jarnheimer.
