PostNord appoints new head of Operations & Technology unit


On July 1, 2019, Egil Møller Nielsen will take over responsibility for PostNord’s newly created Operations & Technology unit. This consists of the former Technology and Infrastructure unit, the operational parts of the E-com & Logistics and Communications Services business areas, and the quality team from Corporate Affairs. Nielsen will also be a member of PostNord’s Group Executive Team and will report directly to President and Group CEO Håkan Ericsson.

Nielsen started his career at DSV and ASG. After that, he was Global Logistics Manager at both ECCO Sko and LEGO, and then vice CEO and COO at Bodum. Since 2014 he has worked for SmartCentres, where he started PenguinPickUp and PenguinFresh, two market participants that have acted as a disruptive force in the Canadian market for the home delivery of food and parcels.

“I am very pleased that Egil Møller Nielsen has accepted the position and that he will move to Sweden to establish our new Operations & Technology unit. He has in-depth knowledge and valuable insights, in particular regarding how parcels and the e-commerce market work in the Nordic countries and globally,” said PostNord’s President and Group CEO Håkan Ericsson.
