Henric Andersson, currently on leave of absence for medical treatment, is unlikely to return to active status as Group CEO due to personal reasons, a Jan. 19 press release from Husqvarna stated. The company's board is now formally seeking a successor.

"In order to respect Henric's privacy, the Company will not comment further on Henric's personal situation. The Board is initiating a process to search for a potential successor. Until further notice, Pavel Hajman will continue in his current role as acting CEO," the release said.
