New Dometic Group president and CEO Roger Johansson is confident that the company can expand its position in the marketplace despite the difficult global economy.

Johansson, who started his new role on Nov. 8, attended what he said was a very successful 2012 Marine Equipment Trade Show in support of the marine division in November. He also recently toured the Pompano Beach, Fla., facility with Dometic Marine president Frank Marciano.

“We have dedicated employees with a lot of ideas on how to even better serve these customers and to grow our business,” Johansson said in a statement. “We also have strong owners who are committed to invest smartly in the company for profitable growth. So although the current global economic environment is not as bright as we would like it to be, especially in Europe, I am very optimistic about our position in the marketplace and our ability to retain and expand that position.”

Johansson was previously CEO of BE Group, a publicly listed company on OMX Nasdaq and a leading trading and services group in steel, stainless steel and aluminum.

He is also the former president of Trelleborg Automotive and former vice president of General Motors Europe, responsible for Powertrain operations and, before that, purchasing.

The new Dometic Group CEO holds a master’s degree in business and economic science from the School of Business, Economics and Law at Gothenburg University.
