Magnus Hall leaves Vattenfall

After nearly six years as President and CEO Magnus Hall has decided to leave Vattenfall. The Board of Directors will now initiate the recruitment process to find a new President and CEO.

- Through his leadership and his commitment to Vattenfall’s customers and employees and to the energy transition, Magnus Hall has significantly contributed to Vattenfall’s improved position in the market. He leaves a financially stronger and more stable Vattenfall with a clearly defined target - to enable fossil free living within one generation. On behalf of the Board I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Magnus and thank him for his valuable contributions to Vattenfall, says Lars G Nordström, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

- After many exciting and inspiring years as CEO of Vattenfall I have decided to step down. It has been an incredibly inspiring journey together with engaged colleagues in the executive team and across the company who have all worked hard to take Vattenfall to its current position. Vattenfall is one of the drivers towards a fossil-free energy future and I will remain fully committed until my successor is in place, says Magnus Hall.

- The Board will now start the recruitment process for a new President and CEO with the goal to make a smooth succession. Vattenfall’s existing strategy and financial targets remain unchanged, says Lars G Nordström.

Magnus Hall will leave Vattenfall at the latest on January 31, 2021.
