Neobo’s Nomination Committee proposes Jakob Pettersson as new Board member

Neobo has undergone changes in its ownership structure since the 2023 Annual General Meeting. The Association of ICA Retailers (ICA-handlarnas Förbund) is now the largest owner of Neobo, with 9.63 percent of the shares. 

The Nomination Committee of Neobo – comprising Ilija Batljan (chair), Johannes Wingborg, Sven-Olof Johansson and the company’s Chairman of the Board Jan-Erik Höjvall – has decided to propose an expansion of Neobo’s Board of Directors with Jakob Pettersson, CFO of the Association of ICA Retailers.

Neobo’s Board of Directors therefore intends to shortly issue a notice to attend an Extraordinary General Meeting.

Jakob Pettersson, born in 1986, is the CFO of the Association of ICA Retailers, where he is responsible for corporate governance and asset management. He brings years of experience from previous roles, which have involved investments in both listed and unlisted property companies. Jakob Pettersson has a degree in economics from the Stockholm School of Economics.

“It is gratifying that our largest owner wants to contribute to the work of the Board as quickly as possible, which demonstrates the long-term engagement expressed by the Association of ICA Retailers. With Jakob, our Board of Directors gains a financially knowledgeable individual who, moreover, is familiar with a large part of our property portfolio from his time as a board member of Amasten,” says Jan-Erik Höjvall, Chairman of the Board of Neobo.
