Swedish fashion retailer Lindex, part of Stockmann, a Finnish listed company engaged in the retail trade, has elected two additional members to the company’s Board of Directors, Eva Hamilton and Per Thelin.

Together the Board now represents solid experience in retail, fashion, and internationalization.

The decision is in line with Lindex’s target to expand successfully on international markets. In the new Board, three members represent Stockmann and three members are independent of the company and its significant shareholders.

Per Thelin is Stockmann’s CEO as of 10 November 2014. He replaces Stockmann’s CFO Pekka Vähähyyppä in the Board and also serves as the vice chairman.

Lindex’s Board of Directors as of 1 December 2014 include Per Sjödell (Chairman), Board member, Stockmann, and CEO, Fiskars Sweden, Per Thelin (Vice Chairman), CEO, Stockmann, Eva Hamilton, professional Board member and CEO, SVT until 30 November 2014, Rossana Mariano, CEO and founder, PR agency RMPR, Tracy Stone, Global Sales Director, GANT, Kjell Sundström, Board member and Chief Strategy Officer, Stockmann, and Caroline Kull Magnusson and Ann-Britt Neckvall, employee representatives.
