SKF announces reorganization

SKF announced changes to its organizational structure and Group Management in an effort to simplify technology development and accelerate customer-driven innovation.

The Group Technology function will be combined with the Business and Product Development function. Victoria Van Camp, previously president, Business and Product Development, will take on responsibility for the combined organization.

Bernd Stephan, previously senior vice president, Group Technology, has been appointed president, Automotive and Aerospace.

Stephane Le Mounier, previously president, Automotive and Aerospace, will take up a new role as advisor to Alrik Danielson, president and CEO. Le Mounier will no longer be part of SKF's Group Management.

"These changes will help accelerate innovation and commercialisation of new technologies. I would like to thank Stephane for his hard work in supporting the operational improvement within our automotive and aerospace businesses," said Danielson.

All changes are effective immediately.
