Saab is seeking a new president and CEO following Håkan Buskhe’s decision to step down from the role.
Bushke will serve a six-month notice period during which he will continue to lead the Swedish aerospace and defence company, finishing by February 2020. An exact date will be set once a successor is appointed.
Having held the position since September 2010, Buskhe said he is seeking a new career move but will remain committed to Saab until a replacement is found.
“The reason I choose to leave Saab is that I would like to face another operational challenge in my career,” he said.
