Maria Rydén appointed new CFO of Salix Group.

Salix Group, an independent business area within Volati, has appointed Maria Rydén as its new CFO. Maria has spent the last four years as Executive Vice President & CFO of the listed company Beijer Ref.

Salix Group came from the acquisition of the Lomond Industrier platform. Its average annual earnings growth since the acquisition in 2015 has exceeded 20 percent and the Group currently has sales of over SEK 3 billion. The recruitment of Maria is another step in strengthening Salix Group’s position as an independent business area within Volati and ensuring a continued high growth rate. Salix Group is well positioned to continue to grow rapidly, both through organic development of existing operations and through add-on acquisitions.

“We are delighted to welcome Maria Rydén to Salix Group. Maria brings important experience from a listed environment and, in particular, acquisition-driven growth. What’s more, she is a great person who will fit in well with the Salix Group culture. Maria will play a key role in ensuring that Salix Group continues to grow at a high rate,” says Salix Group CEO Martin Hansson.

“Salix Group is a very exciting company with strong growth potential, both organic and through acquisitions, and I am proud and pleased to be appointed as CFO. I look forward to becoming one of the team at Salix Group and being able to contribute with my previous experience from global growth companies and as CFO of both listed companies and large privately owned companies,” says Maria Rydén.

“I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Alf for the fantastic work he has done in taking Salix Group to the strong position the group has today. Alf’s importance and contributions to Salix Group’s successful development in recent years has been highly valuable“, says Martin Hansson.

Maria will take up her new role no later than April 2022.
