Following Åsa Söderström Winberg’s, M. Sc. (Econ.), request to release her from the duties as the Chairman of Delete’s Board of Directors, the Extraordinary General Meeting of Delete held on 9 January 2020 has appointed Martin Forss, M. Sc.

Mrs Söderström Winberg will continue as a member of the Board of Directors. She has been a member of the Board of Directors since 2014 and the Chairman of the Board since 2017.
Christian Schmidt-Jacobsen and Ronnie Neva-aho will continue as members of the Board of Directors.
“I warmly welcome Mr Forss as the Chairman of the Board.

I want to thank Mrs Söderström Winberg for her valuable contribution during her chairmanship and I am happy that she will continue with Delete as a member of the Board”, says Christian Schmidt-Jacobsen, a member of the Board and Managing Partner of Delete’s principal owner, Axcel Management.
“I see great potential in Delete as a leading environmental services company in the Nordics. Our work with the management will continue with strategic planning focusing especially on the core business, Industrial Cleaning Services”, comments Martin Forss, Chairman of the Board.
