GMBA brings in significant corporate experience to expand reach and capability

Global Marine Business Advisors, (GMBA) today announced the appointment of Bjorn Ingemanson as the Swedish based GMBA consultant.  Bjorn brings to the group a wealth of corporate experienced having worked for the Volvo group of companies for over 35 years. The Volvo Group is a Swedish multinational manufacturing company headquartered in Gothenburg. While its core activity is the production, distribution and sale of trucks, buses and construction equipment, Volvo also supplies marine and industrial drive systems and financial services.

Bjorn Ingemanson as President and CEO of AB Volvo Penta, Gothenburg, from 2012-2020 managed a turnover of 13.3 billion SEK.  In this position Bjorn increased operating margins significantly and took Volvo Penta from a business mainly selling marine leisure engines to a company today consisting of 2 equally large segments Industrial & Marine. Volvo Penta now has operations in around 140 countries with above 50% market share in marine leisure engines.

The appointment of Bjorn Ingemanson has increased the global footprint of GMBA offering direct knowledge of the Swedish marine market plus greater expertise and skills across the high level global corporate marine environment.

Like all GMBA consultants, the network that Bjorn has developed over his 35 years with Volvo in many different management roles is extensive and very valuable to those businesses wanting to enter global markets.

Jouko Huju commented,” Bjorn coming on board is important as this enhances our capabilities in the corporate arena but equally increases our global footprint. A consultant based in Sweden, a country with a population of 10 million, provides important knowledge for those looking to do business in Scandinavian countries.

Bjorn Ingemanson advised, “ I am excited to join GMBA and utilise the knowledge and expertise I have developed over so many years to assist those companies wishing to enter or expand their global markets.  This is never an easy task but when you have the networks we have developed it certainly can cut through the mire to get outcomes a lot more quickly and cost effectively”
