Finnish rental company Cramo has appointed two new members to its group management team.

It said Petra Schedin Stergel was its new senior vice president of human resources development, while Mattias Rådström was the new senior vice president of communications, marketing and investor relations.

The company said they would assume their positions at Cramo no later than 1st October 2016.

Mrs Schedin Stergel has been head of the human resource function since 2006, and part of the management team at PwC Sweden. And Mr Mattias Rådström has been vice president of global social media and PR at Electrolux, Sweden since 2011.

Cramo president and CEO Leif Gustafsson said, “Human resources development and communication are key positions in a service company like Cramo.

“We have not had a group level HRD function for some time and we have also lacked a common responsibility for all aspects of external communication.

"Making Cramo more attractive for employees, attracting the best talents and strengthening the brand further are key areas to lift our position as a leader in the industry to the next level. Thus I am very pleased that we have managed to recruit such qualified persons in these two crucial areas.”
