Transcendent Group elects external board members

June 4, 2018

Transcendent Group has elected external board members in order to enhance corporate governance and to increase the independent part of the Board of Directors.

Transcendent Group is a company, where only the main owners have been represented in the board. Transcendent Group has experienced a strong profitable growth in its operations for many years. In the lights of the rapid growth and international expansion, the owners have now concluded that it is time to separate ownership matters from the work in the Board of Directors, and to introduce a Board of Directors also containing independent members. With the strategic agenda set by the owners, new independent members of the Board of Directors will provide additional value to the corporate governance.

 – We are both proud and happy to get access to the extensive experience and expertise that the new Board members possesses, says Martin Malm, CEO Transcendent Group
