“In a company it is important to have a versatile composition on the board. The size of the board of directors should be kept down, especially in a small company such as Novotek. Novotek has therefore decided that the board members should have as diverse a focus as possible and reflect the company’s needs.
Novotek also strives for an even gender balance (in accordance with the Code’s recommendation of about 40 %).
