Board of Directors
TDC's Board of Directors comprises 10 members, of whom six are elected by the General Meeting, and four are elected by the employees.
The Board of Directors has an international profile and some diversification in relation to age, nationality and professional background.
In 2018, the Board of Directors decided on a target figure among the board members elected by the general meeting that, no gender (among the board members elected by the General Meeting) shall be represented on the Board of Directors by less than 25% by the end of 2020.
The percentages of female and male board members are 17 % and 83 %, respectively, in 2018.
The Board of Directors features a wide range of competence and experience, including: financial competency, legal competency, customer relationship experience, international telecommunications experience, online business experience, branding experience and senior executive experience from other Danish listed companies.
Board members elected by the employees
Pursuant to Danish legislation, the employees of TDC are entitled to representation on the Company’s Board of Directors in the form of employee-elected board members. The Danish Companies Act grants the employees the right to elect a number of representatives equivalent to half of the total number of board members elected at the General Meeting.
The board members are elected by employees for a four-year period, and have the same rights, obligations and responsibilities as the board members elected by the General Meeting. The current employee representatives were elected to the Board of Directors in 2016 and their period will expire in 2020.
