Uponor Board organisation and roles

Uponor Corporation’s Annual General Meeting held earlier today elected Jorma Eloranta as Chair of the Board. He has served in this role since March 2014. In its organising meeting, the Board of Directors elected Annika Paasikivi as Deputy Chair of the Board.

The Board resolved to establish an Audit Committee and a Personnel and Remuneration Committee. The committee charters are described on the company’s website at http://investors.uponor.com > Governance > Corporate governance > Board committees.

With regards to the Personnel and Remuneration Committee, Uponor does not comply with the Finnish Corporate Governance Code 2015, which recommends that a Board Committee should consist of three members. Uponor considers that sufficient expertise for the Personnel and Remuneration Committee is secured with two members. The Committee acts as a preparatory and assisting body for the Board of Directors, and all essential matters relating to remuneration shall be dealt by the Board of Directors. Furthermore, the Committee may also obtain views from outside of the Committee.

Composition of the Committees is the following:

Audit Committee:
Annika Paasikivi (chair)
Markus Lengauer
Jari Rosendal

Personnel and Remuneration Committee:
Jorma Eloranta (chair)
Annika Paasikivi
