Stefan Engdahl new CEO of SKB
Stefan Engdahl has been appointed new CEO of SKB, the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company. He joins the company from the Swedish Transport Administration, where he is currently Executive Director Market and Planning, with responsibility for planning state infrastructure for road, rail and, in the long term, also for shipping and aviation. He has held senior positions at the Swedish Road Administration and Swedish Transport Administration since the late 1990s.
– SKB has an important mandate to manage nuclear waste, and is about to build a final repository system in Forsmark and Oskarshamn. I look forward to being able to contribute to the Swedish nuclear waste programme, and thereby to fossil-free electricity generation in Sweden, says Stefan Engdahl.
SKB’s main owner is Vattenfall AB, and Vattenfall’s Head of Business Area Generation Torbjörn Wahlborg (also Chairman of the Board at SKB) has led the recruitment of the CEO:
– Stefan Engdahl has solid experience of managing major programmes and infrastructure projects in a business that is affected by political decisions. He is also very familiar with commercial negotiations and dialogues.
– This experience, combined with a result-oriented leadership style, is important in the intensive phase SKB is currently going through, says Torbjörn Wahlborg.
Stefan Engdahl will take up his position on 1 October 2023.
