Sweco announced today that, as a supplement to its previously presented proposals, the company’s Nomination Committee proposes Åsa Bergman to join the Board of Directors.

Sweco’s Nomination Committee presented its proposals to the 2018 annual general meeting on 14 March 2018. The Committee proposes re-election of Gunnel Duveblad, Elaine Grunewald, Johan Hjertonsson, Eva Lindqvist, Johan Nordström and Christine Wolff and to newly elect Alf Göransson. Further, the Nomination Committee proposes that the annual general meeting re-elect Johan Nordström as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Anders G. Carlberg and Tomas Carlsson have requested to not be re-elected.

The Nomination Committee has decided to propose the election of an additional person, Åsa Bergman, to the Board of Directors, as she will be taking over as Sweco’s President & CEO on 20 April 2018.

Åsa Bergman joined the Sweco group in 1991. After eight years she was appointed regional manager to oversee Sweco’s project managers in northern Sweden, before being appointed president of Sweco Management in 2006. She took over as president of Sweco Sweden in 2012. During Ms Bergman’s time at Sweco, the Swedish organisation has grown from around 3,000 to around 5,700 employees, and operating revenues have grown from roughly SEK 3.6 billion to approximately SEK 7.0 billion.

Ahead of the 2018 AGM, the Nomination Committee is comprised of: Eric Douglas representing Investment AB Latour, Birgitta Resvik representing the J. Gust. Richert Memorial Fund, and Chairman of the Board Johan Nordström (also chairman of the Nomination Committee) representing Skirner Förvaltning AB.
