According to the Articles of Association, the Board of Directors of BE Group must consist of at least three and no more than ten directors elected by the annual general meeting for a term that lasts until the end of the next annual general meeting. The Articles of Association do not allow election of alternate directors.

BE Group's current board is made up of five directors elected by the AGM held on April 29, 2020: Jörgen Zahlin, Chairman of the Board, Carina Andersson, Lars Olof Nilsson, Mats O Paulsson and Petter Stillström, along with one employee representative, Mikael Törnros.

All five directors elected by the annual general meeting are independent in relation to BE Group and the Company's executive management. All directors elected by the annual general meeting, with the exception of Petter Stillström, are considered independent in relation to BE Group's principal owners.


Each year, the Board of Directors sets a written agenda that clarifies, among other matters, the responsibilities of the Board and that regulates the mutual division of labour between the Board and its committees, as well as the role of the President. The rules of procedure also govern how the Board will obtain information and documentation as a basis for exercising its responsibilities and to enable it to make informed decisions. Read more about the Board of Directors work in the Corporate Governance Report.
