Global security solutions provider Securitas has announced some alterations to its senior management team operating within the company’s European division. Magnus Ahlqvist, the new president and CEO of Securitas AB as of March next year, will now also retain his position as divisional president of Security Services Europe. For his part, Henrik Zetterberg has been appointed chief operating officer (COO) for the division with a keen focus on Northern Europe. In addition, Aimé Lyagre continues as COO and CTO with expanded responsibilities for countries in Western Europe.
As communicated by the business on 13 August this year, Ahlqvist will replace Alf Göransson as president and CEO of Securitas AB, taking up his new position in March. Ahlqvist’s decision to keep his current position as divisional president of Security Services Europe ensures the solid recruitment process for a new divisional president of the European business.
Henrik Zetterberg joined Securitas in 2014. Previously, he worked for ASSA ABLOY as part of the Group’s legal team and within numerous divisions of the business.
Going forward, Zetterberg and Lyagre will support Ahlqvist in managing the business in the 26 countries where Securitas has operations in Europe and continue to be members of Securitas’ Group Management.
The recruitment process for a new General Counsel of Securitas has already been initiated.
