Per Mikael Jensen is leaving Metro International

Metro International S.A today announced that Metro’s CEO, Per-Mikael Jensen, has decided to leave the company.

Metro International has divested a large part of its global operations in the past years. The main focus is now concentrated on the six Latin-American markets and Metro Sweden. It is against this background that Per Mikael Jensen has chosen to leave Metro.

Anders Kronborg, COO at Kinnevik, will be responsible for Metro International going forward and Per Mikael will be at the company’s disposal during his notice period.

“Per Mikael Jensen has been with Metro since 2007 and he has been very successful at turning Metro around. We will miss him but respect that his current mission is fulfilled and that he wants to move on. I would like to thank PM for his time at Metro and wish him all the best in his future endeavours” says Anders Kronborg.

I have had six great years at Metro International, and I have been fortunate to work with some very strong executives around the World. After having been part of consolidating the industry in Europe whilst having grown drastically in Latin America, this is now a good time to say thank you and look for other opportunities, either within the Group or outside” says Per Mikael Jensen.
