Fingerprint Cards proposes new board members, chairman

April 24, 2016 - 

The Fingerprint Cards AB Nomination Committee has proposed that Jan Wäreby be newly elected as chairman of the board, and that Peter Carlsson, Michael Hallén, Åsa Hedin and Tomas Mikaelsson be newly elected as members of the board.

The Nomination Committee also proposes the reelection of Urban Fagerstedt, Lars Söderfjell, Carl-Johan von Plomgren, Jan Wäreby and Katarina Bonde. The chairman of the board Urban Fagerstedt has declined reelection as chairman of the Bboard and so has Alexander Kotsinas.

Dimitrij Titov, Chairman of the Nomination Committee commented: “Now that the company is entering a new development phase, the Nomination Committee has pursued the objective of broadening competencies on and the versatility of the board of directors. At the same time, we have increased the number of board members, since we have concluded that the company’s development and the execution of the company’s strategy, focusing on new verticals, will benefit from a broad composition.

“The proposal that Jan Wäreby be elected as new chairman of the board is related to continued focus on technological development, to which Urban Fagerstedt intends to devote more time. Jan Wäreby’s networks and experience of international marketing and sales are competencies that I believe are important for further developing the Company’s global strategy.”

Fingerprint Cards recently published its annual report for 2015 documenting a record year that includes SEK 2.901 billion (US$356.6 million) in revenues, which amounts to a 1,142 percent rise over 2014.

Fingerprint Cards 2016 Annual General Meeting will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at Hotel Gothia Towers in Gothenburg, Sweden.
