leaving the post of president. , Karl-Johan Persson, will leave the ceo seat to become the new chairman of the board. Why is that?
Stefan Persson and family, I thought it was about time, it is easy to answer. Still, it's a surprise. H&M has had a difficult year, and Karl-Johan Persson, have been under pressure, and challenged, and held a dominant owner, and he had been loose.
But the tide has turned, and the group is a major vinstlyft at the same time, with the news of the coming shift in the been the presidential seat. Stefan Persson, who is filling 73 years of age, then decide to come back, it can thus be seen as a natural next step. Both he and his son can leave for their respective missions after they were successful.

The Stefan Persson family's control of 74% of the vote. It has not been changed in any way by today's announcement. Calif, writes that he will continue to be an active owner.

However, the Persson family, has been shown to be able to handle, even with the setbacks, and it can turn them into success stories. That is why it should not be a shift in the ceo - and the ordförandeposterna negatively impact the group.
