CFO Jan Kildal leaves Norske Skog

Jan Kildal has resigned from his post as chief financial officer at Norske Skog with immediate effect.

He has made a big contribution to the group during his nine years as CFO. The decision that our ways must now part has been reached in mutual understanding.
We extend our thanks to Mr Kildal for his contribution to Norske Skog, and wish him every success in the future.
Vidar Lerstad, senior vice president for strategy, will also act as chief financial officer for a transitional period. During this time, responsibility for the corporate information technology function will be exercised by Rolf Negård, senior vice president for human resources and organisation.
