The Nomination Committee of Resurs Holding AB has resolved to propose to the Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on 2 October 2019 that Board member Martin Bengtsson be elected Chairman of the Board.
As previously announced, the Chairman of the Board Jan Samuelson has decided to leave the Board in connection with the Extraordinary General Meeting. The Nomination Committee has therefore worked on a proposal for the new Chairman of the Board and proposes that Board member Martin Bengtsson be elected the new Chairman of the Board. The Nomination Committee has particularly considered Martin Bengtsson’s many years of experience from Board work at Resurs Holding and his extensive knowledge of the Resurs Group’s business. Martin Bengtsson represents the largest shareholder, Waldakt AB, and has been a member of the Board since 2012.
Board member Christian Frick has also announced that he is leaving the Board in connection with the Extraordinary General Meeting, as a result of, as previously communicated, Nordic Capital’s divestment of all its shares in Resurs Holding.
If the Extraordinary General Meeting resolves in accordance with the above, the Board of Directors will consist of the following: Martin Bengtsson, Johanna Berlinde, Mariana Burenstam Linder, Fredrik Carlsson, Anders Dahlvig, Lars Nordstrand, Marita Odélius Engström and Mikael Wintzell, with Martin Bengtsson as Chairman of the Board.
The Extraordinary General Meeting is planned to be held on Wednesday, 2 October 2019 in Helsingborg and Notice to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting will be published shortly.
