The Chairman of the Board of Resurs Holding, Jan Samuelson, has declined re-election at the Annual General Meeting to be held in April 2019, but has agreed with the Nomination Committee to continue in his role of Chairman until the Extraordinary General Meeting that is usually held in the autumn.
Jan Samuelson has served as Chairman of Resurs Holding since 2012 when Nordic Capital acquired the majority of the shares in the company. Resurs has since reported strong growth and the company is now four or five times larger in size.
“These have been very exciting years in Resurs’s history. First there was the intense growth phase with Nordic as the principal owner, followed by the IPO in 2016 and since then stable organic growth with double-digit percentages in lending, income and earnings. Resurs’s tremendous performance during this period is the result of the great commitment and expertise of its owners, Board, management and employees. It has been an inspiring and enriching environment in which to serve as Chairman,” says Jan Samuelson.
“Today, Resus is a well-managed and stable listed company, which creates favourable conditions for a new chairman to take over at the helm, while giving me the opportunity to find time for other appointments,” concludes Samuelson.
“We would like to thank Jan for his excellent work,” says Martin Bengtsson, Chairman of the Nomination Committee, who also says that the process of recruiting a successor has begun.
