Apotek Hjärtat CEO Anders Nyberg Announces Retirement

ICA Gruppen has announced that Anders Nyberg, the top boss of Apotek Hjärtat, has decided to retire in the fall of 2021.

The company has initiated a process to find a successor to Nyberg.

He will continue as CEO of Apotek Hjärtat and a member of the group management of ICA Gruppen until a new CEO is appointed, the company added.

'A Market Leader'

Per Strömberg, CEO and President of ICA Gruppen, commented, “I would like to extend a warm thank you to Anders Nyberg, who in recent years has developed Apotek Hjärtat from a challenger to a market leader.

“It is a journey that has included the development of a leading e-commerce, the acquisition of Min Doktor, and to utilise the strength of being part of ICA Gruppen by running and establishing pharmacies in connection with larger ICA stores.”
