STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Avanza (STO:AZA) board member Lisa Lindström has with immediate effect resigned from the Boards of Avanza Bank Holding AB (publ) and Avanza Bank AB (Avanza), due to the risk of conflicts of interest between her operational positions in the consulting firm Doberman and her role as board member of Avanza. Avanza’s Nomination Committee will start work immediately to find a new board member candidate to replace Lisa Lindström’s expertise in the Board. "Lisa’s unique expertise in digital media and innovation processes has been very important for Avanza. She has also been a valuable member of the Board and her presence in the boardroom will be missed. Therefore it feels natural to find a new member who can replace the expertise that Lisa has." says Sven Hagströmer, Chairman of the Board.
