New administrator jumps ship before he starts

Swedish GP reports that the man suggested as new administrator of the Saab reconstruction has jumped ship even before he takes on the task.

Yesterday the current administrator Guy Lofalk in a letter to the Vänersborg District Court applied to be relieved from the task as administrator of the Saab reconstruction. In the same letter Saab suggested that Lars-Henrik Andersson should be appointed new adminsitator and it said that Andersson was willing to take on the task.

But earlier today Lars-Henrik Andersson telephoned the Vänersborg District Court and said that he would not be able to take on the task as administrator after all. The reason for the sudden change of heart is unknown.

Saab will have until 16:00 CET today to suggest another administrator.

"We will find a new person. We are working on it together with Guy Lofalk now," said Eric Geers, Executive Director Communications.

The court will appoint a new administrator on Monday.

This was another piece of uncertainty and unprofessionality that Saab does not need.
