The Nomination Committee of Trelleborg AB has decided to propose that the 2016 Annual General Meeting elect Johan Malmquist, Gunilla Fransson and Susanne Pahlén Åklundh as new members to the Board.
Furthermore, the Committee proposes the re-election of Board members Hans Biörck, Jan Carlson, Sören Mellstig, Peter Nilsson, Bo Risberg and Anne Mette Olesen. It is proposed that Sören Mellstig be re-elected as Chairman of the Board.
Claes Lindqvist, Heléne Vibbleus and Nina Udnes Tronstad are not available for re-election and will therefore resign their seats on the Board in connection with the 2016 Annual General Meeting after many years of commendable work.
The Nomination Committee has diligently looked for new members who have experience from both international and industrial operations to complement the Board. Moreover, the Committee has searched for members who can reinforce the Board in terms of business development. The proposed new members have such backgrounds and the Committee feels that they are extremely well-suited to the Board of Trelleborg AB.
Johan Malmquist has worked for Getinge AB for many years, serving as its President and CEO for 18 years. He is currently advisor to Getinge and a board member of Mölnlycke Health Care AB, Elekta AB and the Chalmers University of Technology Foundation.
Gunilla Fransson has worked for Saab AB, most recently as Head of the Security and Defence Solutions business area. She has previously held several positions within Ericsson AB. Gunilla Fransson is currently a board member of Net Insight AB, Permobil AB and Teleopti TEM AB.
