Tomas Carlsson has been appointed the new President and CEO of NCC. Tomas is currently employed at the listed architecture and engineering consultancy Sweco. He previously worked at NCC for nearly 20 years, most recently as the Head of NCC’s construction operations in Sweden.
“I am delighted that Tomas Carlsson will be the next President of NCC. Tomas is highly familiar with NCC’s operations and he has been able to expand his expertise during his time at Sweco. He has gained experience in leading a consultancy firm and has also been able to observe how various construction companies operate in the market. Sweco’s stock-market performance has been strong, with the company’s share price tripling. Tomas’s project experience is a perfect fit for NCC,” says Tomas Billing, Chairman of NCC.
Tomas Carlsson has been the President of Sweco since the end of 2012. During his time as President, the company increased its sales from approximately €790m (SEK 8bn) to approximately €1.67bn (SEK 17bn) with a stable operating margin.
Tomas previously served as Head of NCC’s construction operations in Sweden which at the time generated sales of approximately €2.4bn (SEK 25bn) and accounted for about half of NCC’s sales.
“It feels like coming home. I am very much looking forward to leading NCC and see great potential for developing the operations,” says Tomas Carlsson.
Tomas Carlsson will take up his new position at NCC by July 2018 at the latest. Håkan Broman will serve as acting President in the interim.
“Naturally, I hope that Tomas will start working before the summer. Until then, we have an excellent acting President, Håkan Broman. Håkan has already taken measures to reduce overheads and has also recruited a new strong leader for the Infrastructure business area, Kenneth Nilsson from Skanska, who will take office in April,” says Tomas Billing.
