“I am very pleased that Peter Muld has accepted the position of CIO of ICA Gruppen and ICA Sweden. Peter joined ICA in 2016 and has held various roles over the years, including Chief Digital Officer of ICA Gruppen and Head of Strategy for ICA Sweden. Peter’s experience and personality make him highly suitable to drive through the major changes that are going to be implemented in the new Digital & Technology organisation,” says Nina Jönsson, CEO of ICA Gruppen.

“During the past 1.5 years, Benny Svensson has been a driving force for the major changes now being implemented within IT and technology throughout ICA, including new working methods, a new organisation and new technology to meet ICA’s business needs going forward. These changes involve merging three IT organisations into a single unit located within ICA Sweden. When this work now moves from a design phase to an implementation phase, Benny and I are agreed that this is a good time for a change in the CIO role. I would like to thank Benny for his courageous and strategically important change initiatives within IT,” says Nina Jönsson, CEO of ICA Gruppen.

“Now when we have completed our vision, strategic initiatives and reorganisation of the new IT & Technology operation, it feels like a suitable time for me to hand over the baton ahead of the implementation phase. Putting in place the new IT & Technology organisation has been an exciting and challenging task. Our focus has been on creating the right conditions for growth and efficiency by bringing together the digital and the technical into a single unit which provides a more business-oriented organisation with working methods that benefit the ICA stores, customers and the totality within ICA,” says Benny Svensson, CIO of ICA Gruppen.

“The new Digital & Technology organisation is now entering an extremely exciting phase where we are starting the work of implementing a clearly business-focused operation and where we are also building a totality as well as a new shared culture. I feel great humility and enthusiasm for this task and am really looking forward to continuing the work of strengthening our digital environment together with all employees and stores,” says Peter Muld, incoming CIO of ICA Gruppen and ICA Sweden.

Recruitment of a replacement for Peter Muld will start immediately and in the meantime Karin Heller, Director Strategy & New Business, will step in as acting Head of Strategy & Transformation within ICA Sweden.
