Jaana Tuominen was elected Chairman of the People and Nomination Committee and Tiina Alahuhta-Kasko and Mengmeng Du as other members of the Compensation and Nomination Committee.
The Board assessed the independence of its members and concluded that all members, except Jukka Erlund, are independent of the company and its significant owners. Jukka Erlund is not deemed to be independent of the company, because Piia Karhu, Finnair’s Senior Vice President, Customer Experience, is member of the Board of Erlund’s Kesko Corporation, which is Erlund’s employer.
