Sweden’s Kinnevik appoints Anderson from Baillie Gifford as new chairman


STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – Swedish investment firm Kinnevik said Friday it would propose James Anderson as its new chair after Dame Amelia Fawcett announced in November that she was not standing for re-election.

Anderson, born in 1959, will retire in the first half of 2022 from his position with asset manager Baillie Gifford, where he became a partner in 1987, Kinnevik said in a statement.

It added that it would also propose Harald Mix, CEO of Altor Equity Partners, as the new director of the Board of Directors, while Henrik Poulsen and Wilhelm Klingspor would not stand for re-election.

The wealthy Stenbeck family from Sweden are among the shareholders of Kinnevik.
