The Nomination Committee in Wästbygg Group proposes that the 2023 annual general meeting resolves that the board should consist of six ordinary board members without deputies, with re-election of Jörgen Andersson, Lennart Ekelund, Christina Källenfors and Cecilia Marlow. Joacim Sjöberg has declined re-election. The Nomination Committee further proposes new election of Jakob Mörndal and Clas-Göran Lyrhem. Cecilia Marlow is proposed to remain as chairperson of the board.
The Nomination Committee makes the assessment that the proposed board of directors has a suitable composition of competence and experience to meet the needs of the business and that, among the board members, there is diversity and breadth in terms of gender, age, educational background, experience and competence. We propose two new candidates with good industry knowledge who will be able to contribute in a relevant way to the board's work. I would also like to thank Joacim Sjöberg for his great contribution to the board during his time as a board member, says Rutger Arnhult, Chairman of the Nomination Committee in Wästbygg Group.
Jakob Mörndal, born in 1983, has a Master of Science in Economics and Business from the Stockholm School of Economics. Since 2023, Jakob is CEO of M2 Gruppen and before that he has worked as Chief Operating Officer and Acting CEO at Castellum as well as Head of Business Development at Klövern. Jakob has ongoing board assignments in, among others, Everysport Group AB (publ), Footway Group AB and Servistore AB.
