Tord Johansson (1955-2015)
Tord Johansson, one of ITAB’s main owners and the Chairman of the Board of Directors, passed away suddenly on 10 October at the age of 60. Tord was born in Mörlunda, near Oskarshamn, in 1955.
After graduating in industrial economics from Linköping Institute of Technology, he acquired a small company in Jönköping at the end of the 1970s. This company formed the basis for the three Groups listed on the stock exchange in which he was a main owner at the time of his death.
Tord has always been highly engaged in the business of the Group. With his strategic and industrial expertise, he has been of great importance for the development of the company. He had a unique ability to engage excellent managers and employees around him.
Tord will be deeply missed, both privately and within the companies. One of his great abilities was to create strong and skilled corporate managers, which he allowed to grow into their roles. Tord was a true entrepreneur and we will continue to run the companies in his spirit.
