Back to overview

After six years of serving as Managing Director for Scania Production Zwolle, Johan Uhlin has been appointed to become Managing Director for Scania Sweden within Commercial Operations. Johan is set to assume leadership from the departing CEO, David Källsäter, on August 1, 2024.

Johan Uhlin brings with him a wealth of experience in Scania’s operations and products, along with a proven track record of leading large organizations. Since 2002, he has been deeply involved in production, holding various managerial positions, including roles within engine assembly in Södertälje, Sweden, overseeing bus operations in Slupsk, Poland, serving as CEO of the cabin production unit in Oskarshamn, Sweden, and most recently as CEO of the chassis operations in Zwolle and Meppel in the Netherlands.

As the new CEO, Johan Uhlin is eager to build upon Scania Sweden’s strong foundation and guide the company towards further success. The appointment of Johan Uhlin reflects Scania’s commitment to continuity and growth in the Swedish market.

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce is very proud and excited for Johan about this new appointment, however, it means that Johan’s time in the Netherlands will come to an end, as he will move back to Stockholm, Sweden, with his family. Unfortunately, this also means that Johan is resigning as Chairperson of the Board of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce.

“I am so very proud and honoured to having served as your Chairman for the last two years and representing Scania in the board of Directors for the Swedish Chamber of Commerce since April 2019, but the time has come for my family and me to move on for future endeavours” says Johan.

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce congratulates Johan on his exciting new appointment and wishes him lots of success.

“We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Johan for his exceptional contributions and dedication during his time as Chairperson for the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the Netherlands. It has been fantastic working together with Johan for the past years, his loyal commitment has been instrumental in steering the Chamber’s activities towards greater success and impact within the Swedish-Dutch business community” says Kerstin Gerlagh, General Manager of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce.
