Miika Eerola has worked in the international oil sector since early 2000s and will move to the role of CEO of St1 Refinery Ab after being in SVP positions in MOL Group Downstream Division in Hungary since 2013.

To ensure continuity and smooth transition, Technical Manager Mikael Öberg is nominated as the acting Managing Director of St1 Refinery Ab for the period from 1 November 2020 to 31 January 2021. While, the current CEO, Bo-Erik Svensson, will focus on transition and serve as an advisor to the Refinery Chairman of the Board ahead of his retirement during spring 2021.
