Reuters reports that Stefan Jacoby, CEO of Volvo, has suffered a mild stroke. It happened last week, and although Jacoby says he has limited movement in the extremities on his right side, he says he's already begun improving.

Jacoby, 54, is "under medical supervision" and will be on sick leave for a month. It's a busy time for the company captain as a he works out how to convey the full value of Volvo offerings and is apportioning Geely's $11 billion investment, not to mention supervising the launch of the V40 Cross Country and a considering a Mini rival. Company CFO Jan Gurander has taken over in Jacoby's absence. We wish Jacoby a speedy and complete recovery.

      Get well Mr. Jacoby. Glad it was just a mild stroke, as a serious stroke can be life changing.

      Oh my. Prayers for a speedy recovery. Stroke treatment is very good these days, and getting better - thank goodness.

      Thoughts and prayers. Maybe this will give him sometime to clear his head and change his mind about not releasing the V40 and XCV40 in the US.
