Kinnevik’s Nomination Committee proposes the election of James Anderson as new Chairman of the Board and Harald Mix as new Director of the Board at the Annual General Meeting in April 2021. The Committee further proposes the re-election of Susanna Campbell, Brian McBride, Charlotte Strömberg and Cecilia Qvist as Directors of the Board.
Anders Oscarsson, Chairman of the Nomination Committee, said:
”Last year, my colleagues and I set out to reshape the Board of Kinnevik, primarily focusing on recruiting individuals who represent innovative and global investment excellence. The timing has been fortuitous for us as shareholders. This morning it was announced that James Anderson will be leaving Baillie Gifford next April 2022 after what will have been an extraordinarily successful 39 year career with the firm. In parallel, we are proud that James has accepted to stand as Chairman of Kinnevik already this year while he makes his transition.”
