SKF announces that Tom Johnstone has decided to step down as President and CEO of SKF, on 1 January 2015. Tom Johnstone will be succeeded by Alrik Danielson who has been President and CEO of Hoganas AB since 2005. Alrik Danielson worked at SKF between 1987 and 2005 and held a number of executive positions within the Group including that of President of the SKF Group’s Industrial Division and member of the SKF Group’s Executive Committee.

Leif Ostling, Chairman of the Board of SKF, comments: "I am very pleased to welcome Alrik Danielson back to SKF. His experience during 18 years at different positions in SKF and the last nine years as CEO of Hoganas AB makes him a competent successor to Tom Johnstone.”

Leif Ostling continues: “I want to thank Tom Johnstone warmly for his great achievements during close to 38 years at SKF and above all during his time as President and CEO. Under Tom’s leadership SKF has developed into a Knowledge Engineering company, profitably increased its sales from SEK 41 billion in 2003 to SEK 63 billion last year and delivered a Total Shareholder Return of over 400 percent”.

Alrik Danielson says: “I am proud and happy to rejoin SKF and to become its President and CEO in January. I look forward to continuing to build on the Group’s positive development during the last decade.”

Tom Johnstone, SKF President and CEO, comments: “To retire from SKF after almost 38 years with the company will not be easy. However, the time is right and the decision to step down has been made easier by the Board choosing Alrik Danielson as my successor. I wish him and the SKF team the best of luck. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Board, our shareholders, our customers and distributors and all the fantastic employees within SKF for their strong support in my years as President and CEO.”
