Danish shipowner and operator Norden is beefing up its board with two heavyweight names.
The Copenhagen-listed company has nominated Ian McIntosh, former chief executive of huge commodity trader Louis Dreyfus Co, and pension fund executive Vibeke Bak Solok as new directors.
A shareholders meeting will be held on 9 March to vote on the additions.
British citizen McIntosh, 62, is based in London.
He had a long career in commodity trading at Louis Dreyfus and retired as group CEO in 2020.
He managed the global activities of a number of key commodities, working from London, Melbourne, Paris and Geneva.
McIntosh set up Edesia Asset Management as part of the group. This became one of the world’s largest commodity-focused hedge funds, managing predominantly external institutional capital.
Bak Solok is a Dane who is chief financial officer at ATP Ejendomme, a subsidiary of the largest Danish pension fund.
She is, however, due to take up a position soon as CEO of internet-based Danish lender Lunar Bank.
Up for re-election
Bak Solok was originally a state-authorised accountant at PwC and became a partner in 1994.
She was later head of group finance and chief operating officer in group risk management at Danske Bank.
Norden is also recommending the re-election of chairman Klaus Nyborg, Johanne Riegels Ostergaard, Karsten Knudsen and former Frontline CEO Robert Hvide Macleod as directors.
