“We’re now taking the next steps to move even closer to the consumer and making the ownership of our products into an outstanding lifetime consumer experience”, says Electrolux President & CEO Jonas Samuelson. “By getting organized globally around the consumer journey we can better leverage our scale on how a consumer buys an appliance, how we get them onboarded to connecting and using it and strengthen our aftermarket products and services offering.”
