  1. Welcome aboard, Frank! Congratulations on your position and keep ’em in line there at NEVS : )

  2. Welcome back Frank!
    Griffin Up!!!

  3. Wow, what is that 3 former Saab staff back in 3 days? This is great to see and welcome back Frank.

    • Jason, they said that they had sent job offers to 75 persons, till now we know from 3 that have accepted their offers.
      I hope it doesn’t take 75 days till all 75 accept. 😎

      • LOL, maybe Tim knows of more but is spreading them out….. Either way, if all 75 accepted in the first day, that would be a very impressive statement too.

      • The 75 you think about is mostly bluecollar maintenance people that have been working all the time and now have been asked to work for NEVS. These three new is something else even that both Stig Runesson and Kjell ac Bergström also have been working all the time.

  4. Picture?

    • Just added a photo I found on the Saab Engineering site

      • Would be fun to find out how the gender balance pan out. So far, only men in black suits?

        • Good point. Hopefully a good mix of men and women will emerge. Certainly Saab had women, albeit not many so far as I could tell, in some important positions before the bankruptcy.

  5. Keep them coming!

  6. This is a very good week—showing serious intentions by NEVS.
