Kungsleden’s CEO Biljana Pehrsson proposed as new member of Swedbank's Board of Directors

Swedbank’s Nomination Committee proposes Kungsleden's CEO Biljana Pehrsson as a new board member of Swedbank. The election takes place at Swedbank's Annual General Meeting on 26 March.

“This is not only good news for Swedbank but also for Kungsleden. If Biljana Pehrsson is elected to the Board of Directors, Swedbank will receive solid expertise in change management and excellent knowledge of the real estate industry. On the other hand, strategic board work in Sweden's largest bank will broaden her knowledge and experience, which will benefit Kungsleden,” says Kungsleden's Chairperson of the Board, Charlotte Axelsson.

Biljana Pehrsson has been CEO of Kungsleden since 2013 and was previously a member of Kungsleden's Board of Directors between 2011 and 2013. If Biljana Pehrsson is elected as a member of Swedbank's Board of Directors, she will leave her board assignments in Einar Mattson where she has been a member of the Board since 2017 and East Capital Baltic Property Fund where she has been on the Board and the Advisory Board since 2013.
