Jesper Brodin will become the new president and CEO of home furnishing retailer IKEA Group. Brodin is currently the managing director of IKEA of Sweden, responsible for the development of the product range and supply chain. He will succeed Peter Agnefjäll who was introduced to the role in 2012. Brodin will take his new position from September 1, 2017.
 
"I am pleased to welcome Brodin to his new role. I am convinced that his extensive experience, and passion for life at home and retailing, will enable him to successfully continue the remarkable work conducted by Peter Agnefjall. While I am sad to see Agnefjall leave after many years of service, I respect his decision. Under Agnefjall's leadership, IKEA Group has expanded into new and crucial markets, accelerated our retail transformation in order to meet the changing needs of customers, and taken our sustainability commitments further. I look forward to working with Brodin as we take our next steps in becoming the world's leading multichannel home furnishing retailer for the many people," said Lars-Johan Jarnheimer, chairman of INGKA Holding BV.
 
"After 22 extraordinary years at IKEA, and 5 years after I was brought into this role, I believe it is a natural time for me to take a change of path. These years have meant a lot to me, both personally and professionally, and it's been a big part of my life. I will now take some time off with my family, before I embark on my next journey. I look forward to continuing to follow the success of this fantastic company with its many talented co-workers. I will continue to be one of the greatest fans of IKEA and stay close to the many friends I've made during the years," said Agnefjall. 
 
"Agnefjall and I have had the opportunity to work side by side over many years and I am the first in the long line of colleagues who would like to thank him for his great contribution and leadership which has helped grow IKEA in many ways during the last period. I believe we have many exciting years ahead and I am excited to be part of the rapid transformation of retail. I am very honoured and excited about my new assignment," said Jesper Brodin. r and I have had the opportunity to work side by side over many years and I am the first in the long line of colleagues who would like to thank him for his great contribution and leadership which has helped grow IKEA in many ways during the last period.
