Agneta Palmér appointed new CFO of Getinge

Lars Sandström is leaving the position as Getinge’s CFO for a new opportunity outside of the company. He will be succeeded by Agneta Palmér, who has been working at Getinge since 2018, most recently in the role of Executive Vice President Operational Services and member of the executive management team.

”I am very pleased that Agneta is taking over as CFO. She has extensive experience from finance in global operations and has in-depth knowledge of Getinge's business. In addition, in her previous role, she has been involved in establishing our current finance organization, which she will now continue to develop," says Mattias Perjos, President & CEO at Getinge.

Agneta Palmér most recently served as Executive Vice President Operational Services and prior to that she was Vice President Corporate Control at Getinge. She has previously held similar positions at AB Volvo.

The change will take effect at the end of March, when Lars Sandström leaves Getinge.

”Lars has contributed with solid expertise and has been key in sharpening our global finance function and setting a culture of continuous improvement throughout the organization, which has been of great benefit to the company. I have appreciated Lars as a colleague and wish him all the best in the opportunity that has arisen outside of Getinge," says Mattias Perjos.
