Hans Oscarsson - Chief Financial Officer
Hans Oscarsson was appointed Chief Financial Officer of Volvo Car Group (Volvo Car) as of August 1, 2013. Hans Oscarsson was Deputy CFO and Operation Controller at Volvo Car until then and succeeds Jan Gurander, who was CFO since 2011.
Following the sale from Ford Motor Company, Volvo Car has under the leadership of Jan Gurander built up a finance function that meets the reporting and controlling requirements for an independent company. The company's accounting function has been strengthened, IFRS accounting standards have been implemented and a treasury function has been established. The company also signed a number of strategically important financing agreements with Chinese and international banks.
"During his more than two years at Volvo Car, Jan has created the conditions for long-term stability amidst a complex environment, and we thank Jan for his excellent efforts," says Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO of Volvo Car. "We now have a finance function that guarantees ongoing continuity."
Hans Oscarsson has worked within Volvo Car since 1990. He has a thorough experience as a controller and CFO in both national sales companies as well as in several central functions. Hans Oscarsson was temporary CFO for Volvo Car during 2010-2011 and with that fulfilled a key role during Zhejiang Geely Holding's acquisition of Volvo Car.
"Hans Oscarsson's broad experience within Volvo Car and his efforts during different phases of the company's history makes him highly suitable to take over the CFO position," says Håkan Samuelsson.
