Mats Rahmström has been appointed president and CEO of Atlas Copco from April 27, 2017, replacing Ronnie Leten, who decided to leave his position, having managed Atlas Copco for eight years.

Rahmström is currently senior executive vice president and president of the industrial technique business area – a role that he has held since 2008, having previously served as president of the tools and assembly systems general industry division within the industrial technique division.

Hans Stråberg, chair of the board of directors of Atlas Copco, said that Rahmström had a strong business focus and was “an appreciated leader who is living and breathing the Atlas Copco values”.

He added: “During his time as head of industrial technique, he has transformed the business which has led to a strong profitable growth. I am convinced that we have found a new solid leader inside the company, who can further develop Atlas Copco.”

Rahmström began his Atlas Copco career with the industrial technique division in 1988, and for the next decade held positions in sales, service, marketing and general management. Between 1998 and 2006, he was occupied as the general manager for customer centres in Sweden, Canada and the UK.

He is a board member of Permobil Holding and of CIBE Lifts.
