Washington— Skanska’s P3 branch, Skanska Infrastructure Development (ID) has gone through a recent leadership change with the promotions of Johan Henriksson to Business Unit President and Magnus Eriksson to Executive Vice President for North America.

Henriksson has held many positions during his extensive collaboration with the company, including his current role as executive vice president for Skanska ID in the U.S, former CFO for Skanska ID AB and CFO for Skanska Sweden. Henriksson replaces Steve Sams, who is heading for retirement in January 2017.

Stepping into Henriksson’s former shoes is Magnus Eriksson, a 16-year veteran within the company, who will serve as executive vice president of infrastructure development for North America. Currently senior vice president of the same branch, he has some of Skanska ID’s biggest P3 projects under his belt, such as the A1 motorway in Poland, the NKS hospital in Sweden and LaGuardia Central Terminal B in New York.
