The nomination committee is elected by the general meeting. The nomination committee’s duties are to propose to the general meeting qualified candidates for election to the board of directors, to propose the remuneration to the board and to propose new members to the nomination committee.
The members of the nomination committee were elected by the annual general meeting on 12 May 2015 for a period of two years: Harald Voigt (chairman), Robert N. Keith and Rune Sundvall.
Proposals for board members should be presented to the nomination committee by 1 March each year. This deadline is set to allow for necessary reviews and reference checks prior to the deadline for submitting the notice for the annual general meeting. The nomination committee may consider and propose other candidates than those presented to it.
The composition of the board of directors shall ensure that the board can attend to the common interests of all shareholders and meets the company’s need for expertise, capacity and diversity. The board shall, in addition to complying with relevant corporate legislation, meet the requirements of the Norwegian Code of Practice for Corporate Governance for composition and independence.
