The chaos of the last days around our Swedish car maker continues. The management of Saab is already decimated since both a CFO and a CEO is missing. After the departure of Jan Ake Jonsson Victor Muller took over the post of CEO, so far no new one has been found.
Now Saab Chief Jurist Kristina Geers has also left, and that's the worst possible time. Geers? There was something. Exactly, Saab Press Officer Eric Geers is the man of Kristina Geers, a true Saab love story so to speak. We'll talk about that another time.
Ms. Geers' departure is not only to be found in the current crisis, there are also other reasons for it. Formally, the unions have now taken over Saab. Because Victor Muller is currently sitting alone at the table with two employee representatives. Annette Hellgren from the Union and Hakan Scott from IF Metal would now have a majority vote in Saab. Robert Schujit, director at the Saab mother “Swedish Automobile” will probably move up to the board at the appropriate time.
No good news and a very bad timing.
