Fortum, an energy company, recently announced the election of nine individuals to its board. Mikael Silvennoinen was elected as chairman, Essimari Kairisto as vice president, and Ralf Christian, Luisa Delgado, Jonas Gustavsson, Marita Niemelä, Prank Paavola, Johan Söderström, and Vesa-Pekka Takala as board members. The state had previously announced its decision to give up its board seat in Fortum, which would come into effect in January with the departure of Maia Strandberg.

During the general meeting held by Fortum, it was decided to grant discharge from liability for the 2023 financial year to all individuals serving as board members and CEO in 2023. Additionally, a dividend of EUR 1.15 per share was approved. Furthermore, the general meeting authorized the board to decide on the acquisition of the company’s own shares with a maximum of 20 million shares to be acquired. This authorization included the transfer of 20 million shares as well.

The decisions made by Fortum’s general meeting were aimed at ensuring that the company operates smoothly and effectively in the future. With new board members being elected and various actions being granted authorization for implementation, Fortum is well-positioned to continue its operations efficiently in upcoming years.
