Øresundsbro Konsortiet’s Board of Directors has appointed Linus Eriksson as new CEO of the Øresund Bridge.
He will take up his position on November 1 and will most recently resign from his position as traffic director at Skånetrafiken.
– We are very pleased that Linus Eriksson becomes new CEO of Øresundsbro Konsortiet. He has solid operational experience and broad knowledge of the Öresund region. It is important when the Øresund Bridge now enters a new decade, with the goals of increasing traffic and contributing further to regional integration, says Bo Lundgren and Peter Frederiksen, chairman and vice-chairman, respectively, at Øresundsbro Konsortiet.
Linus Eriksson has been traffic director at Skånetrafiken since April 2015 and was previously the Swedish Transport Administration’s traffic management manager with responsibility for road and train traffic in southern Sweden.
– I look forward, together with the Øresund Bridge staff and partners, to continue the good work that has been done for 20 years, says Linus Eriksson.
– I am convinced that the bridge has much more to offer on both Danish and Swedish side. Through sustainable transport and smooth passage, the bridge creates growth in the Öresund region – but also in the countries as a whole.
Linus Eriksson succeeds Caroline Ullman-Hammer, who announced her departure before New Year, after 13 years at the post.
