Sherry Khanzadeh takes up her new role in Spring 2020
Sweden-based Thomas Concrete Group has appointed Sherry Khanzadeh as its new chief financial officer.
She will take up the role in the spring of 2020 at the family-owned group which produces and distributes high-quality concrete for on-site cast construction.
Khanzadeh will be a member of the executive management team and will be based at the group HQ in Gothenburg.
She joins from Stampen Media, one of Sweden's largest media groups and owner to among others the Gothenburg Post. Khanzadeh has worked as the group's CFO at Stampen Media since 2016. For 19 years she has held leading positions in several different industries in business administration and finance, and also in IT and purchasing, mainly in the energy and food industries as well as media.
Khanzadeh succeeds Per Bergbrant, who will retire during 2020 after working at Thomas Concrete Group for 19 years.
"With her personality, broad experience and solid expertise from different industries, Sherry will be a valuable person in our company’s continuous positive development,” said Hans Karlander, president and CEO of Thomas Concrete Group. "At the same time, I would like to take this opportunity to extend a big gratitude to Per Bergbrant, who for many years has been a key person in our company's strong development."
Thomas Concrete Group says it is growing and since 2014 has acquired some 40 plants in both the USA, Germany, Poland and Sweden. Earlier this year the Group acquired a larger raw material operation in Germany which it says will secure a safer and more sustainable supply of raw materials for the future and to contribute to higher customer service.
