“A company needs to have a versatile board structure. The size of the board of directors should be kept as low as possible, especially in a small company as Novotek. Novotek has decided that the board members should have as much as possible different focus and reflect the company’s needs.
Novotek also strives for an even gender balance (in accordance with the Code’s recommendation of about 40 %). Consequently the board of directors have the following structure, experience and special responsibility.
The Chairman of the board Göran Andersson, MSc. Eng, has CEO experience from SattControl AB and Novotek, has founded Novotek and accomplished many acquisitions.
Claes Lindqvist, both MSc. Eng and MSc. Econ, has CEO experience from Höganäs AB and other listed companies and has as special responsibility to review information to the Stock exchange and media before publication.
Fredrik Larsson has extensive experience as a project manager and as a solution architect in the telecommunications industry. The common denominator in many of the projects in Novotek’s line of business and the telecommunications industry has been about introducing standard platforms in a complex business using a global delivery model.
Anna Bjelm is MSc. Eng and Executive MBA and are today MD at DIAB AB. Her experience of working in senior positions within Lean in a number of companies is important for Novotek. Lean promote efficiency in companies and is what Novotek offers its customers.
Charlotta Johnsson is PhD in Technology and are today Vice Dean at LTH with a special focus on Innovation and Collaboration.
