Thomas Hellström är OIM Swedens nya VD

New CEO of OIM

OIM Sweden has appointed Thomas Hellström as the new CEO of the company. Thomas Hellström comes most recently from Etteplan, where he worked as Area Manager.

From March 1, Thomas Hellström will take up the role of CEO. At the time Thomas takes over as CEO, Ali Jehanfard, who has served as acting CEO since September 2022, will take on the role of Senior Advisor.

Thomas Hellström is basically an engineer from Uppsala and ended up in the consulting world early on. For a number of years, he ran Devex’s office in Uppsala before moving to Skåne and starting up Devex Mechatronics’ third office in Sweden. Since then, the work has mainly been characterized by growth and the establishment of more offices before the company was finally acquired by Etteplan. At Etteplan, Thomas has stayed for a few years to continue Etteplan’s operations in Lund.

Ali Jehanfard, acting CEO:
“- We are very proud that Thomas has chosen to come over to us at OIM and continue to build on the journey that the team here has begun. Thomas is exactly the profile we have been looking for and it feels good that he wanted to take on the task of driving OIM Sweden toward continued growth. He has consistently delivered strong results in his previous roles, which gives us great confidence and calm for the future. Thomas is an appreciated and inspiring leader among his former employees, which feels very positive when we now strengthen our team. OIM’s strategy is and remains to deliver product development that makes a real difference for people, together with the most driven engineers and Thomas will have an important part in us as a company achieving our goals.”

“- OIM is an exciting company that I have followed for some time and have really respected what has been created. The company has the engineering disciplines required for real product development and I feel connected to their focus on Medtech. OIM is entrepreneurial that can create many exciting opportunities. To be trusted by the owners to manage and run the fine company they have built up feels honorable. I look forward to getting to know all employees, customers, and suppliers. My primary focus will be to build customer relationships and a healthy organization that can grow with quality in focus, says Thomas Hellström, future CEO of OIM.”
