Patrik Andersson, who has over 30 years of experience from companies in food and consumer goods, is proposed to replace Ola Erici as Chairman of the Board. Anders Svensson, former CEO of ICA Sweden, is proposed to replace Peter Wahlberg as a new Board member. Board members Ola Erici and Peter Wahlberg have both previously informed the Nomination Committee that they will not be available for re-election.

The Nomination Committee proposes Patrik Andersson, born in 1963, as new Chairman of the Board. Patrik was until recently CEO of the Nasdaq listed traded cash management company Loomis, a position he has held since 2016. Previous position includes CEO of Orkla Foods Sweden, CEO of Rieber&Søn, Head of Swedish Match North Europe Division and CEO of Wasabröd. Prior to that, Patrik worked in various senior management positions within Unilever for 12 years.

The Nomination Committee also proposes Anders Svensson as new Board member. Anders Svensson was most recently CEO of ICA Sweden, where he worked for over 13 years, which would provide Midsona's Board with unique insight into retail and consumer goods. Prior to that, Anders held leading senior management positions, including CEO of Arla Foods Sweden and several roles within Procter & Gamble. Anders is currently Chairman of the Board of Stadium and the Swedish Trade Federation (Svensk Handel), as well as Board member of Skistar and the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise (Svenskt Näringsliv).

Patrik Andersson and Anders Svensson are proposed to replace Ola Erici and Peter Wahlberg, who have decided not to be available for re-election. The Nomination Committee has proposed to the Board that the new members should be elected at an Extraordinary General Meeting before the end of the year. 

"It is a testament of strength for Midsona to be able to propose Patrik and Anders to the Board. They both have long experience from food and grocery retailers both on an operational and strategic level and will be great assets to Midsona.
