Magne Vidar Skorstad chose to resign as CEO in order to continue in Stansefabrikken as chairman of the board of Stafa Industrier. Magne Vidar was not only the CEO and main owner from the start, but also an important person in both the start-up and development of the company. With his energy and solid leadership style, he led Stansefabrikken from a small local factory in Lillesand to an international business group with several subsidiaries and many different business enterprises.
Jon R. Westby, who replaced Magne Vidar, is still CEO of the Stansefabrikken Group today.
These two are the only CEOs Stansefabrikken has had in its 35-year operation, and this shows one of Stansefabrikken's values; continuity and long-term thinking. The same type of long-term thinking also applies to our partners, customers and employees.
With Jon at the helm, the group has continued its stable growth in both turnover and profitability. We are always thinking ahead to achieve the next goals in our long-term plans.
