Normet Appoints Lindahl CEO

25 January 2016

Normet Group has appointed Robin Lindahl as president and CEO. He will take the position by May 1.

He will take over the position from Tom Melbye, who has decided to step down from his operative role to act as a senior advisor to the CEO and chairman of Normet Group. Melbye will work on special strategical and business development tasks.

 “The past eight years under Tom’s leadership have been exceptionally successful for Normet,” said Aaro Cantell, chairman of Normet Group. “We have grown fast and transformed from a pure Finnish equipment company to a global underground process know-how company.”

Lindahl joins Normet from Outotec Oyj where he currently holds the position of executive vice president and president of Metals, Energy & Water business area. Before that he held leadership roles for Nokia Group in Finland, Switzerland and Germany.

“I am very pleased that we have found Robin to take over as the new president and CEO and I believe he has the needed skills to take Normet to the next level," said Cantell. "He has a good track record of successfully managing and developing world leading technology intensive businesses both at Outotec and at Nokia where he has always been able to build strong performing teams around him.” 

A Finnish citizen, Lindahl will be based in Huenenberg, Switzerland.
