We have created a completely new company through the integration of Billerud and Korsnäs. Without a professional and strategic HR organization this would not have been possible. We therefore thank Karin for her considerable efforts that has taken us to where we are today and given us the opportunity to aim for the future. We fully respect Karin's decision although we of course regret that we no longer will be able to benefit from Karin's commitment to our continued growth journey.”
