Honorary Chairman is an honorific title sometimes given to a former eminent person within a company. The concept of honorary chairman is not regulated in by Swedish law and an honorary chairman does not obtain any former legal position within the company. Hence, an honorary chairman is neither a member of the Board of Directors nor a member of the bank’s management. As Honorary Chairman, Hans Dalborg will as agreed with the Chairman and the CEO promote the interest of the bank, for example by participating in seminars and other events of Nordea and to attend conventions, seminars and ceremonies associated with Nordea.
