BOLIDEN, Sweden, Dec 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Helene Seim has been appointed General Manager at Boliden's Odda zinc smelter in Norway. Helene's most recent position was Production Manager, and she has worked at Boliden Odda since 2003. Helene replaces Dag Berg, who has been General Manager since 2010, and who has been appointed Manager R&D Strategic Projects within Boliden Smelters to strengthen the business unit's strategic research and development initiatives. They are both, at present, expected to take up their new positions at the start of 2017.
