April 24, 2018 – The nominating committee of NetEnt has today announced that it will propose that the Annual General Meeting to be held on April 25, 2018, elects Fredrik Erbing as new Chairman of the Board of Directors. Fredrik Erbing has been a member of the Board at NetEnt since 2008.
Ahead of the upcoming AGM, NetEnt’s current Chairman Vigo Carlund has decided to stand down as Chairman and member of the Board, for personal reasons. The Nominating Committee has today announced that it will propose that the AGM, to be held on April 25th, 2018 in Stockholm, elects Fredrik Erbing as new Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Fredrik Erbing has been a member of the Board of NetEnt since 2008 and is a member of the Audit Committee. He is Vice President at Acando AB and has a Master of Engineering degree from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
NetEnt’s departing Chairman of the Board, Vigo Carlund, comments: “During my two board tenures I have been part of the Board of NetEnt for a total of 15 years, 11 of which as Chairman. Due to personal reasons not related to the Company, I have now decided to leave the Board. Fredrik Erbing has great knowledge about the sector and NetEnt, and he has played an important role for NetEnt’s development during his time at the Board. This makes him suitable as Chairman of the Board of NetEnt.”
The Nominating Committee proposes that the rest of the Board be re-elected at the AGM and that the new Board shall consist of those seven directors.
