“I have now completed the assignment I got two years ago from the Karnov Group CEO, Flemming Breinholt”, explains Olov Sundström and continues:

“I was then asked to lead the integration of Karnov’s Swedish operations with Norstedts Juridik, which Karnov acquired in January 2018. Now we have completed that work and formed one strong united company with one organisation, one product offering and with one newly developed, superior online platform that was roll out to customers during the fall.  In addition, all employees are now in one refurbished office”

“In total I’ve been with the company for 32 years holding positions such as President and Vice President of Karnov Group Sweden, Norstedts-Pacta and Norstedts Juridik. I think this is a good time to change Head of our Swedish operations when all the integration work now is completed, and Karnov Group has proven its capability to be a listed company for one year. I’ve therefore decided to give notice to step down in April”.  

The CEO of Karnov Group, Flemming Breinholt, comments on Olov Sundström’s resignation:

” Olov Sundström has done an outstandingly good job as CEO during the time I’ve had the pleasure working with him. I really want to thank him for everything he has done to the success of our company. The process of finding a new CEO for Norstedts Juridik has now begun.”
