A few weeks ago Goran Ejbyfeldt was chosen to follow Gunnar Brunius as production director. Nor we his taking on another career opportunity (GP.se):
“Goran Ejbyfeldt, newly appointed Production Director and responsible for the quality and the IT department, leaving Saab for a position as IS-IT director in the Västra Götaland Region.”
The above is a direct quote from Saab Automobile information to employees.
Goran Ejbyfeldt was commissioned as a production director at the end of November, when he replaced Gunnar Brunius who went to a new assignment at Volvo Aero.
That he this quickly takes a new job can be a sign that the much talked about loyalty to Saab – as manifested in the fact that most of the heavy items remained in the company despite uncertainty – is beginning to break up.
GP have searched Gunilla Gustavs at the Information Department for comment, without success.
Ms Gustav is also heading for a new mission. She has a new job as information officer at Husqvarna.
I don’t think that it is a sign that the employees’ loyality towards Saab is breaking up, but they can only afford to stay on board up to a certain point. They all got families to feed. So don’t blame those who leave for doing so, though it is always sad to loose good people. All the best Goran.
