Jökull Gunnarsson, who took over as CEO of the Bakki plant last fall, has announced that he will step down for personal reasons as CEO of PCC BakkiSilicon next month. Jökull has stated that he is leaving for personal reasons, and not because of ongoing technical problems at the plant. He will work closely with the new CEO Rúnar Sigurpálsson until the summer. Rúnar will be the third CEO of the company in a span of 1 year. He is currently the CFO of TDK Iceland in Akureyri.
