Commenting on his new post, Dinandt said: “I am very pleased to be joining Hilding Anders and to further develop a business with excellent opportunities for the future. My main focus will be to lead the company to more profitable growth. Also, building on the work of past successors, together with the team, we’ll speed up the change agenda that the company has experienced over the last year.”
