Perstorp recruits Ib Jensen as new CFO
Ib Jensen has been appointed new CFO at Perstorp Holding AB as of February 1. Ib is a senior executive with a solid background, and most recently he comes from the position as CFO at Arxada, a carve-out of Lonza Specialty Ingredients.
Previous experience includes CFO and executive roles within Finance and IT at companies such as Lonza, Syngenta, Danisco, and LEGO. “I’m very excited and honored to join Perstorp at this stage of their journey. I’m looking forward to being part of the team”, says Ib Jensen.
Perstorp President & CEO Jan Secher comments:
“It is with great pleasure we welcome such a seasoned executive into our team and the CFO role. In particular, I value the highly relevant experience from our industry, however most importantly, Ib has a great personality and I am convinced he will fit into our already diverse team and contribute to future value creation in a very successful way.”
Ib Jensen takes over the CFO role from Ulf Berghult, who will leave Perstorp in April. In the first quarter of 2021, Perstorp redefined its business strategy to become a leading sustainable solutions provider, focusing on the global Resins & Coatings, Engineered Fluids, and Animal Nutrition markets. This strategic direction will see Perstorp focus its specialty chemicals growth initiatives primarily on selected customer segments where innovation and services are prioritized, and with a focus on Asia as the main driver for future growth. Perstorp’s strategy also reconfirms the company’s aspiration to be among the front-runners in sustainability.
