Board of Directors

The Board of Directors at Schouw & Co. consists of six members elected by the shareholders in general meeting. The Board of Directors elects a chairman and a deputy chairman.

The members of the Board of Directors are elected for periods of 4 years, and each member is eligible for election in different years, thus ensuring the continuity. When calling for new election of a member of the Board of Directors, great importance is i.a. attached to the fact that the new member possesses professional knowledge and experience which can contribute to the necessary scope of competence, and that the new member can act independently of private interests.
