Board of Directors

The Board is responsible for the management of Elekta’s operations. The Board appoints a President and CEO who is responsible for the day-to-day operations in accordance with the Board’s guidelines. The President and CEO keep the Board informed of significant issues including information about Elekta’s performance, earnings and financial position.

Composition of the Board
The Board of Directors comprises eight members who were elected by the 2013 Annual General Meeting for the period until the next Annual General Meeting. Laurent Leksell was elected new Chairman at the 2013 Annual General Meeting. There are no employee representatives on the Board.

Independence of the Board
The composition of the Board meets applicable independence requirements as six of the eight Board members have been deemed independent in relation to the Company, the management and major shareholders.

Remuneration
Remuneration to the Board of Directors is resolved on by the AGM and is paid to those Board members who are not Elekta employees. Elekta has not introduced any share, or share-based incentive program for Board members. Remuneration to the respective members is detailed in the table on this page.
