FPC appoints Göran Malm and Tord Wingren as new members of Advisory Board
Fingerprint Cards (FPC) is expanding its Advisory Board (AB) and is appointing Göran Malm and Tord Wingren as Senior Advisors, as well as members of the Fingerprint Cards Advisory Board.
Göran Malm, who is currently an investor, consultant and member of the Board of several companies, has a background as President Asia-Pacific with both General Electric (GE) and Dell Computer. Göran Malm was also a member of Samsung’s Principal Board for nine years, most of this time as the only non-Korean member. There are very few Swedes with similar experience of international transactions, and that have a network that can match that created by Göran. Göran Malm has also held a guest professorship at the Gothenburg School of Economics and Business Administration, where he is still a frequent guest lecturer.
Tord Wingren, who was appointed Vice President & Site Manager of the highly active Huawei venture in Lund in March 2012, have a long and successful career in telecom, and in the high-tech industry in Sweden and internationally. During 2008–2012, Tord Wingren was co-founder and President of Nanoradio AB. Before that, he was Managing Director of Samsung Europe & Corporate VP, as well as President & CEO of Ericsson Mobile Platforms. In addition to 27 years in operational assignments, Tord Wingren served and still serves on the Boards and Advisory Boards of a number of technology companies, as well as the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF.
Göran Malm and Tord Wingren will succeed Peter Svensson and Mats Lindoff on the FPC Advisory Board, which will thus comprise Jörgen Lantto, Göran Malm and Tord Wingren. Jörgen Lantto is responsible for Ecosystems for Mobile Semiconductors and devices at Ericsson, having just returned to Ericsson from ST-Ericsson where he was Executive Vice President, CTO and Strategic Planning. FPC would also like to take this opportunity to thank Peter Svensson and Mats Lindoff for their meritorious contributions.

”I’m delighted that FPC has been successful in appointing individuals with such experience, expertise and networks to our Advisory Board.
