SAMPO PLC STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 30 January 2023 at 5:15 pm
Antti Mäkinen is proposed as new Chair of the Board of Sampo
Sampo’s Nomination and Remuneration Committee plans to propose previous Board member Antti Mäkinen as a new member of the Board of Directors of Sampo plc at the Annual General Meeting on 17 May 2023, and to nominate him as Chair of the Board of Directors. Björn Wahlroos, the current Chair of the Board of Directors, has previously notified that he is not available for re-election. Mäkinen was a member of the Board of Directors of Sampo in 2018–2021.
- Antti has a compelling set of skills, with extensive experience of the financial services industry and of successfully stewarding a major listed Nordic company as Chair. In addition, Antti has strong knowledge of Sampo’s business and culture from his time on Sampo plc’s Board of Directors. I am convinced that Antti is the best candidate for the position and that his appointment will benefit Sampo, says Björn Wahlroos, Chair of the Nomination and Remuneration Committee.
- I am delighted to be nominated for the role of Chair of the Board of Sampo. As the largest pan-Nordic P&C insurer, and a leader in digital insurance services, Sampo is well positioned to continue its strong track record of creating shareholder value. During my previous tenure as a member of the Board, I took part in establishing Sampo’s P&C focused strategy, so I am excited by the prospect of working with the Board and management on implementing this, says Antti Mäkinen.
Mäkinen has managerial experience of over 20 years in the financial services industry, including Nordea, eQ plc and SEB Enskilda Securities. He was previously CEO of Solidium, and he has been on the Board of Directors of e.g. Sampo and Metso Outotec and the Chair of Stora Enso. Mäkinen was born in 1961 and holds a diploma of Master of Laws from University of Helsinki.
Björn Wahlroos was elected as Chair of the Board in April 2009. Before that, he was the Group CEO and President and Board member of Sampo in 2001–2009.
This proposal made by the Nomination and Remuneration Committee will be discussed by Sampo plc’s Board of Directors. The Board will publish its full proposal for the members of the Board of Directors for the AGM on 29 March 2023. Sampo AGM will make the decision on the members of the Board of Directors on 17 May 2023 and the Board will elect its Chair in its organisational meeting after the AGM the same day.
