Metro International announced on December 16 that Metro’s CEO, Per-Mikael Jensen, decided to leave the company. From the press release:
Metro International has divested a large part of its global operations in the past years. The main focus is now concentrated on the six Latin-American markets and Metro Sweden. It is against this background that Per Mikael Jensen has chosen to leave Metro.
Anders Kronborg, COO at Kinnevik, will be responsible for Metro International going forward and Per Mikael will be at the company’s disposal during his notice period.
Per Mikael Jensen was quoted as well:
“I have had six great years at Metro International, and I have been fortunate to work with some very strong executives around the World. After having been part of consolidating the industry in Europe whilst having grown drastically in Latin America, this is now a good time to say thank you and look for other opportunities, either within the Group or outside”.
