Sweco's nominating committee proposes Johan Nordstrom as the new Board Chairman.
In a release, the Company noted that the nominating committee also proposes re-election of the sitting board members Anders Carlberg, Tomas Carlsson, Gunnel Duveblad, Eva Lindqvist, Pernilla Strom and Carola Teir-Lehtinen. The nominating committee's proposal means that the number of board members elected by the general meeting would decrease to seven, from the current eight.
"Sweco has shown outstanding development in recent years and this is an appropriate occasion to pass on chairmanship to a new individual who can contribute new ideas and perspectives. Johan Nordstrom knows the company well through his role as one of the principal shareholders, and has relevant experience from other companies and board assignments," said Olle Nordstrom, Sweco's current Board Chairman and chairman of the nominating committee.
Nordstrom has been a member of Sweco's board since 2012 and works as President of the family company Skirner AB. Nordstrom is currently chairman of Besqab AB and a member of the boards of Hemfrid i Sverige AB and Sparbossan Fastigheter AB, among others.
"In Johan Nordstrom, Sweco will gain an engaged and competent Chairman. I would also like to extend my gratitude to Olle for his deep commitment to the company and his ability to achieve effective board performance by involving all members. During his 14 years as Board Chairman, Olle Nordstrom has been a key driver for Sweco's development," said Carlsson, President and CEO of Sweco.
Sweco's nominating committee consists of Gustaf Douglas, representing Investment AB Latour, Birgitta Resvik, representing Stiftelsen Gust Richerts Minne, and Olle Nordstrom, representing Skirner Forvaltning AB. The nominating committee's complete proposal will be presented in the notice to attend Sweco's Annual General Meeting.
