Effective from the 1 October 2018, Peter Jordansson will take up the position of senior vice president responsible for purchasing and supplier management as part of the executive management team (EMT), reporting to Volvo chief executive president, Melker Jernberg.
With more than 20 years of experience in logistics and transport, Peter has worked with some of the biggest names in Sweden including Volvo Group, Scania and most recently, steel company SSAB.
Peter’s new role will mark his return to Volvo CE after previously holding management positions at the company. In his new post, he will promote the needs of the supply chain in the company’s strategic discussions. Volvo CE president Melker Jernberg comments, “I am really pleased to welcome Peter to the executive management team. Peter has had strong track records of managing the full supply chain in different industries, from operational level to strategic level. The supply chain is a critical part of our overall business and we see a need for the purchasing function to get more focus by being directly represented in Volvo CE's strategic discussions.”
Peter’s first logistics position came in 1994, at AQ Segerström & Svensson, based in the same town as Volvo CE’s manufacturing facilities in Eskilstuna. In 2003 Peter joined Scania in production planning, before moving into logistics at the company’s engine assembly facility in Södertälje. He then spent two years working for Volvo CE at the Arvika facility, before re-joining Scania. Prior to re-joining Volvo CE, Peter’s most recent roles have been at SSAB, where he has been leading its supply chain, purchasing and sourcing development. Peter will be based at Volvo CE’s Gothenburg headquarters when he takes up his position later this year.
