Danske Bank's Board of Directors proposes two new directors
At Danske Bank’s annual general meeting on March 23, 2010, the Board of Directors will propose that Michael Fairey and Ole Gjessø Andersen be elected new members of the Board.
Mr Fairey, aged 61, worked for, among others, Lloyds TSB Group PLC (from 1991). He was deputy CEO there in the ten years until his retirement in 2008. Mr Gjessø Andersen, aged 53, has held management positions at EQT Partners (from 2003 to 2008) and SEB (from 1997 to 2003), among others.
"The election of the new board members will give the Danske Bank Group addi-tional expertise in the form of professional management experience from large in-ternational financial corporations," says Alf Duch-Pedersen, Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Concurrently, two members of the Board of Directors will resign. Board member Henning Christophersen has attained the age of 70 and is not up for re-election as the rules of procedure lay down that board members must retire at that age. Board member Niels Chr. Nielsen, aged 68, has decided not to offer himself for re-election.
The agenda for the annual general meeting is scheduled for publication on February 24, 2010.
