LAUSANNE, Switzerland & NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Logitech International (SIX: LOGN) (Nasdaq: LOGI) announced its board of directors has nominated Riet Cadonau to be elected as an independent director at the Company’s forthcoming annual general meeting (AGM). Cadonau’s nomination will join Hasbro’s Deborah Thomas’ announced earlier this month.
Cadonau is the chairman and CEO of dormakaba Holding AG, a global provider of products, solutions, and services for access to buildings and rooms. Cadonau will bring senior leadership and international experience developing solutions combining hardware, software, and services to the board. Subject to his election, Cadonau will take up his mandate on April 1, 2021.
“Riet Cadonau has held senior leadership roles in global and Swiss technology companies for more than thirty years.
