Normet has appointed Robin Lindahl as its new president and CEO.

Lindahl replaces Tom Melbye, who will step down from the role and move to the position of senior advisor to the CEO and chairman, working on “special assigned strategical and business development tasks”.

Lindahl joins Normet from Outotec Oyj, where he currently holds the position for executive vice president and president of metal, energy, & water, working for the company since 2011.

“The past 8 years under Tom’s leadership have been exceptionally successful for Normet. We have grown fast and transformed from a pure Finnish equipment company to a global underground process know how company,” Aaro Cantell, Normet Group chairman, said.

“Wwe want to thank Tom Melbye for his excellent work and achievements to build Normet to be one of the leading worldwide brands and players in Underground Mining and Tunneling. I am, however, at the same time also 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.

“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.”

Lindahl added that he is excited to “lead the company to the next growth phase”.

He will officially step into the role no later than May.
