The nominating committee of NetEnt has announced that it will propose Fredrik Erbing be elected as the company’s new Chairman of the board at this week’s annual general meeting.
Ahead of the AGM, NetEnt’s current Chairman Vigo Carlund has decided to stand down as Chairman and member of the board for personal reasons.
Fredrik Erbing has been a member of the Board of NetEnt since 2008 and is a member of the Audit Committee. He is Vice President at Acando AB and has a Master of Engineering degree from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
NetEnt’s departing Chairman of the Board, Vigo Carlund, said, “During my two board tenures I have been part of the Board of NetEnt for a total of 15 years, 11 of which as Chairman. Due to personal reasons not related to the company, I have now decided to leave the board.
“Fredrik Erbing has great knowledge about the sector and NetEnt and he has played an important role for NetEnt’s development during his time at the Board. This makes him suitable as Chairman of the board of NetEnt.”
