Catena Media has announced that it intends to elect Göran Blomberg and Per Widerström as new members of the board for the period up until the 2020 Annual General Meeting.
At the same time, Henrik Persson Ekdahl and Andre Lavold have declined re-election, in view of Optimizer Invest’s reduced shareholding in the affiliate network.
Blomberg is currently CFO of ICA Handlarnas Förbund and member of the board of ICA Gruppen. He has over 30 years of experience from working operationally, mainly as CFO of several large public companies, such as Hakon Invest AB and Retail and Brands AB.
Widerström is currently CEO of Fortuna Entertainment Group and member of the board of Nordnet Bank AB. He has over 15 years of experience from leading positions within the entertainment and igaming sector, including companies such as Gala Coral Group, bwin.party, Partygaming and expekt.com.
The Catena nomination committee will publish its full proposal and any additional information ahead of its Annual General Meeting, which will be held on 2 May at 15.00 CET. A notice convening the Annual General Meeting is expected to be published on or around 19 March.
The announcement comes just weeks after Catena recorded strong, across-the-board growth in its full-year 2018 results, with the affiliate network remaining on course to meet its 2020 corporate guidance strategy.
