The nomination committee will ahead of the AGM 2022 propose the election of Hilde-Britt Mellbye as new board member and Yrjö Närhinen as new chair of the board of Ambea. Lena Hofsberger and Liselott Kilaas have chosen to not stand for re-election.

Lena Hofsberger has been board member in Ambea since 2012 and chair of the board since 2013.

The nomination committee would like to thank Lena Hofsberger for her great contributions and strong engagement during her extensive tenure as board member and chair of the board of Ambea. Her role in the development of the company over the past ten years cannot be overstated.

”Working with Ambea over the past decade has been extremely rewarding. Ambea has during my tenure as board member and chair grown rapidly and is today one of the leading care providers in Scandinavia with 26,000 wonderful employees. With a new CEO in place since a year back I think this is the right timing to hand over the baton to a new chair”, comments Lena Hofsberger, chair of Ambea.

The nomination committee will also propose re-election of Yrjö Närhinen, Daniel Björklund, Gunilla Rudebjer and Samuel Skott. Information about the board members that will be proposed for re-election is available on www.ambea.com/investor-relations.
