The Lantmännen board currently comprises Per Lindahl, chairman, Hans Wallemyr, deputy chairman, directors Gunilla Aschan, Sonat Burman-Olsson, Johan Bygge, Johan Mattsson, Henrik Wahlberg and Per Wijkander and three employee representatives.
The mandate term for Sonat Burman-Olsson and Per Wijkander is due to expire. Ahead of the Association Annual Meeting for 2020, the nomination committee proposes the re-election of Sonat Burman-Olsson and Per Wijkander, plus the election of Jan Ehrensvärd as a new director.
“Jan Ehrensvärd has a wide-ranging experience from different fields and business areas. He has in-depth knowledge of the challenges facing Swedish agriculture, both from the development of his own enterprise and as a director of the Lantbrukarnas riksförbund (LRF) board. Jan also has substantial experience from different positions at international companies that will be of great value for the work on the board as Lantmännen continues its development in line with its long-term strategic direction, Field to Fork 2030,” says nomination committee chair Kjell Eriksson.
Ehrensvärd, born 1968, has an MBA from Stockholm School of Economics and runs an arable farm outside Tomelilla in Skåne in Sweden. The farm has extensive apple orchards and has been growing apples for must and cider since 2014. Ehrensvärd has a number of board directorships, and is also chairman of Treform Packaging AB and Äppelriket Ekonomisk Förening, plus a member of the LRF national board and Agria Djurförsäkring AB. If elected to the Lantmännen board, Ehrensvärd intends to resign his posts at LRF and Agria Djurförsäkring.
Kristina Glantz Nilsson is proposed for election as new member representative auditor, and the nomination committee also proposes the re-election of elected auditors Maude Fyrenius and Jimmy Grinsvall.
The elections will take place at the Lantmännen Association Annual Meeting to be held on Thursday 7 May at the Clarion Hotel Sign, Norra Bantorget, Stockholm.
