The Nomination Committee is the shareholders’ governing body, which nominates Board members and the Auditor and proposes their fees, among other things.
Nomination committee principles and tasks
The Nomination Committee’s work is founded on the assumption that the Board’s composition should reflect diversity and breadth in terms of the competence, experience and background of its members. An even gender distribution is desirable. The bank’s operations, stage of development and future direction are also taken into account. While it is important that the Board has the support of shareholders, it also has to be independent in relation to the bank and its executive management, as well as to the bank’s major shareholders.
The 2018 AGM decided on the principles for the appointment of the Nomination Committee for the 2019 AGM. They include that the committee will comprise six members: the Chair of the Board and representatives from the five largest shareholders (based on known data on the last business day in August 2018), on the assumption that they wish to appoint a member. The Nomination Committee’s mandate shall be for the period until a new Nomination Committee has been constituted, which is normally in September each year.
Members of the Nomination Committee are:
|Lennart Haglund||appointed by owner-group Föreningen Sparbanksintressenter, Chair of the Nomination Committee|
|Jens Henriksson||appointed by owner-group Folksam|
|Ramsay Brufer||appointed by Alecta|
|Johan Sidenmark||appointed by AMF|
|Peter Karlström||appointed by owner-group Sparbanksintressenter|
|Lars Idermark||chair of the Board, Swedbank AB|
