Helena Back has been employed by Gluetec since 2004 and has more than 11 years of experience of successfully leading the operations. She succeeds Thomas Karlsson, interim CEO who will now return to his previous position as Chairman of Gluetec AB and CEO of parent company Garga Group AB.
– It has been incredibly fun and such an learning experience to see Gluetec evolve into the knowledge-intensive company that it is today. I now look forward continuing to develop our business and offer together with our amazing team and clients, Helena Back says.
The expansion of the company and the fact that Gluetec now includes operations in two locations has evoked a wish for a more permanent solution. As of the merger with Gluetec Piteå in 2017, Gluetec AB now employs 19 specialists in Sorsele and Piteå, Sweden.
