The Lantmännen board currently comprises Per Lindahl, chair, Hans Wallemyr, deputy chair and directors Gunilla Aschan, Jenny Bengtsson, Sonat Burman-Olsson, Johan Bygge, Jan Ehrensvärd, Henrik Wahlberg and Per Wijkander, plus three employee representatives.
Ahead of the Association Annual Meeting of 5 May 2022, the nomination committee proposes the re-election of Sonat Burman-Olsson, Jan Ehrensvärd, and Per Wijkander, plus the election of Jan-Erik Hansson as a new director. Sitting director Hans Wallemyr has announced he does not wish to seek re-election. The other directors are elected until 2023. The nomination committee also proposes the re-election of elected auditors Maude Fyrenius, Kristina Glantz Nilsson, and Jimmy Grinsvall.
“Jan-Erik Hansson is an entrepreneur who is tremendously engaged in Swedish agriculture, and has been an active and driving force in many organizations linked to green enterprises. Jan-Erik’s past experience as a director of international cooperative companies will be of immense value to Lantmännen. His wide-ranging know-how and commitment to the competitiveness of agriculture will be extremely important in board work at a time when Lantmännen continues to work in line with its long-term strategic direction, Field to Fork 2030,” says Göran Brynell, chair of the nomination committee.
Jan-Erik Hansson is 59 and manages an extensive farming enterprise in Färila in Hälsingland, together with his family and co-workers. The enterprise spans dairy, meat, contracting, property and forestry.
The elections will take place at the Lantmännen Association Annual Meeting to be held on Thursday 5 May at Clarion Hotel Sign, Norra Bantorget in Stockholm.
