Danish operator TDC has announced the appointment of Bert Nordberg as chairman from 01 August. TDC was recently taken over by a consortium of pensions companies PFA Pension & Forsikringsselskab, PKA and ATP and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets. Nordberg has served as chairman of Vestas since 2012 and is non-executive director of the boards of Electrolux, Saab, Skandinaviska Cellulosa (SCA) and Essity. Between 2009 and 2012, he was president and CEO of Sony Ericsson.
CEO of PFA Allan Polack said Nordberg’s knowledge of the telecommunications industry and the Danish business sector make him an excellent choice to head the TDC Board. Polack thanked Mike Parton for his leadership as interim chairman. Parton will now continue in his role as vice chairman. Ulrik Dan Weuder will step down from his position on the board when Nordberg joins. – Telecompaper
