Beijer Ref announces CFO change

SWEDEN: Beijer Ref executive vice president and CFO Ulf Berghult is to transition out of the company by mutual agreement in the next six months, the Swedish wholesaler has announced.

Berghult, who joined the company in 2021, will be replaced in November by Joel Davidsson, currently CFO of Malmo-based plastics manufacturing company Rosti Group.

Describing Berghult as a valuable CFO and colleague, Beijer Ref CEO Christopher Norbye said: “As Beijer Ref is now facing a new chapter, accelerating both its growth and its global presence, we have mutually agreed that this is a good opportunity for Ulf to scale down and to let a new long-term CFO take over the journey and the continued execution of Beijer Ref’s strategy.”

Davidsson joined the Rosti Group in 2021. Prior to that he served two years as head of group finance and investor relations at Alfa Laval and  CFO roles within Assa Abloy Entrance Systems and head of group business control at BE Group.
