Business Area Manager
Since the summer of 2006 I am also responsible for the largest Business Area in the Group, Cutting and Welding, that turns around 400 MSEK. Equipment for gas welding is used in mechanical industry but also on construction sites. The business area is centered in the Czech Republic where I have spent half the time and it is represented with sales organisations in all sales companies. A large portion of the job is about driving the Sales organisations at sales meetings and customer events. A main task, however, has also been totrim the too wide product range and about 25% of all articles were pruned in the last couple of years.
As responsible for the largest Business Area, I have also had a role as coordinator between the business areas and as such built up the company´sintranet as well as a central market communication department.
