Malmo, Sweden – Hexpol AB chief executive officer and president Georg Brunstam has passed away, the Swedish compounding group announced 1 Sept.
"It is with great shock and grief that we have received this sad notification", said Alf Goeransson, chairman of the group, noting the unexpected death.
Brunstam joined Hexpol as CEO and president in 2008 and took over as chairman of the board in 2017, with Mikael Fryklund, formerly of Trelleborg taking over the CEO position.
In November 2020 – after the departure of Fryklund – Brunstam returned to his former leadership position, as both CEO and president of Hexpol.
Brunstam has been credited for his success in developing Hexpol into “a world-leading player in the market of polymer compounds.”
“Georg has created a strong organisation with many highly skilled and qualified managers,” said Goeransson.
Deputy CEO and CFO Peter Rosén is to serve as acting CEO and president, while Hexpol's board searches for a new CEO and president.
