Jens Moberg will not be standing for re-election as Chairman of PostNord’s Board of Directors

Read original

The Chairman of PostNord’s Board of Directors, Jens Moberg, has informed the company’s owners, the Swedish and Danish states, that he will not be standing for re-election at the Annual General Meeting on April 26, 2018.

- During my time as Chairman of the Board, PostNord has undergone a major shift, from being a letter-delivery business with some handling of parcels and logistics to being a parcel-delivery and logistics business with some handling of letters. There is still much left to do, but the funding that has been approved for the Danish readjustment is an important milestone in the ongoing transformation. The time is therefore right, after five years, for me to step down and hand over the chairmanship to someone who can implement the defined strategy based on a new set of conditions,” says Jens Moberg.

Efforts to find his successor will start immediately. Jens will remain as chairman until the 2018 Annual General Meeting.

- PostNord’s strategy is firmly-established and the company has laid the foundation for its future development during my time in office. The business has a competent and committed management team and, taken together with the decisions taken in recent years to implement new postal laws in Sweden and Denmark and finance the Danish readjustment, this forms a good basis for overcoming the challenges the company will face in the future,” concludes Jens Moberg.
