Johanna Kjellberg appointed Vice President IT for KappAhl

KappAhl has appointed Johanna Kjellberg as Vice President Information Technology, and made her a new member of the management group. She worked for Volvo Information Technology AB from 2002 and before that was at Ericsson Sweden AB for eight years.

"There is almost as much product flow and logistics as fashion in the fashion industry. It's a question of getting the right product out at the right time to all 300 stores in four countries. KappAhl has complex and dynamic systems that place extreme demands on IT. Johanna's experience and expertise will be valuable assets to KappAhl in this process," says Christian W. Jansson, President and CEO of KappAhl.

Johanna Kjellberg was born in 1958 and studied industrial organisation and production at Chalmers University of Technology. She will take up her position in April.
