“Since PIAB has grown significantly and conquered new markets in such a short period of time, we chose to expand the depth of knowledge and experience of our management team by adding another talented professional,” said Jacob Tell, Deputy CEO, PIAB. “Mr. Lindquist brings a host of new ideas and relevant industry experience to the team that we believe will energize our entire organization.”

Mr. Lindquist acquired 20 years of experience at Scania, a truck manufacturer where he served as group vice president.
