With effect from September 1st Serneberg will oversee Volvo CE’s Munktell Museum of historic machines – which attracted more than 28,700 visitors last year.
The Munktell Museum exhibits more than 180 years of Swedish industrial history and welcomed more than 28,700 visitors in 2018. With a great reputation globally, the museum has steadily grown its visitor numbers – up 40% in the last decade. Among the many rarities on display are the first Volvo CE wheel loader, the first Swedish tractor – built in 1913 – and the world's first mass-produced articulated hauler.
Johan Theofron Munktell, a Swedish industrialist, opened his first mechanic workshop in Eskilstuna in 1832 and later merged his business with the company of the brothers Jean and Carl Gerhard Bolinder, laying the foundation for Volvo CE. As well as a custodian of history, today the museum is also used for conferences and dinner events and welcomes thousands of visitors to the international Volvo Days, the company’s most popular customer event, which is dedicated to demonstrating new products to customers and dealers.
“I am delighted to welcome Jannicke to her new role. With her many years of experience of working at Volvo CE, her passion for customer service and her ability to manage and develop a team, I know that she will lead the museum to a bright future,” comments Bill Law. “Jannicke will take over from Leif Anväg, who has done an incredible job and reinforced the museum as a well-loved part of the local community. I want to thank him for all his hard work and dedication.”
Jannicke has been working for Volvo CE for more than 16 years and started her career at the company’s central refill team in Eskilstuna in 2003. Previously, Jannicke was Director for Volvo CE’s Parts and Attachments Logistics department in the EMEA region. In this position she was responsible for customer support, logistics development, transport follow-up and order handling for spare parts. Outside of work, Jannicke is an active member of Eskilstuna’s theatre group, both on stage and behind the scenes and has been handling the group’s marketing activities for many years.
