During his nine years on the Nasdaq Nordic Ltd Board, Lars Wedenborn played a significant leadership role in Nasdaq’s Nordic business operations and our four exchanges in the Nordics.

We are very fortunate to now have our Nasdaq Nordic Board headed by Peter Norman as Chairman with his extensive financial market background, valuable network and long experience in policy making. I am also pleased to welcome Carl Löfgren and Merja Karhapää to the Board, both highly regarded in their specific areas of expertise. On behalf of the company, I would like to thank Hans-Ole Jochumsen and Anne Leppälä-Nilsson for their contributions and commitment to Nasdaq and the Nordic capital market ecosystems.
Peter Norman has more than 30 years of experience in the financial services industry and the Swedish economy.
