Statement from Vilhjálmur Vilhjálmsson due to change of ceo

“I have decided not to speak regarding the change of CEO and my departure from HB Grandi.  My exit has been settled and thus I must look forward. However, I would like to state the following:

Even though I had every intention to continue my work at HB Grandi, I say my goodbyes with great gratitude. It has been a privilege to be able to participate in the important changes that the company has been going through in the past years.

My journey within HB Grandi can be traced back 18 years to the year 2000 when I was hired as an office manager at Tangi hf. in Vopnafjörður, which later merged with HB Grandi hf. Since then I have participated in the buildup of the company through great changes, ups and downs.

On this turning point, I recognize the privilege of having worked with the wonderful people I have meet throughout my carrier at HB Grandi, both within and outside the company.

With that in mind, I say my farewells with gratitude and I wish the people of HB Grandi and the company itself all the best.”
