At Axis Communications' Annual General Meeting on April 28, Bert Nordberg was appointed new Chairman of the Board of Axis AB.
Nordberg replaces Biörn Riese, who is leaving the board.
“Nordberg is also Chairman of the Board of Vestas Windsystems A/S and Sigma Connectivity AB – they underline from Axis Communications – as well as a board member of Essity AB, Saab Group AB and Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget SCA. Previously, he has also held several other board assignments, including Axis”.
“I look forward – says Nordberg – to returning to the board and leading our work going forward. Axis has had a fantastic journey and continues to develop its offerings to fit a growing and exciting market. As an independent company in the Canon Group, Axis has very good potential to continue to grow and develop”.
Nordberg, who was born in 1956, has previously been CEO of Sony Mobile and held various positions in Ericsson. He is a trained marine engineer and has also studied business and management at INSEAD in France.
The changes in the board mean that Axis board now consists of Bert Nordberg (chairman), Martin Gren, Marianne Brismar, Håkan Kirstein, Toshizo Tanaka and employee representatives.
