Claes-Göran has been Chairman of the ICA Group, then ICA AB, since 2002. He continued with the assignment when ICA Gruppen was listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange in 2013 and after the buyout from the stock exchange in 2022.
“These have been fantastic years and it has been a privilege to lead the ICA Group as Chairman of the Board. We have pursued active development of ICA in a fast-changing business environment where we have met new customer needs by constantly adapting. All the time by being responsive, with the long-term perspective as a guiding light and backed by ICA’s century-old history and unique idea. During these years the ICA Group has had three different ownership constellations. From the start retailer-owned, then a joint venture with the Dutch Ahold Group, subsequently a listed company and now retailer-owned once more. You could say that we have come full circle, so after just over 20 eventful years it feels natural to hand over the baton,” says Claes-Göran Sylvén, Chairman of ICA Gruppen.
Magnus Moberg, the Nomination Committee’s proposal as the new Chairman of the Board of ICA Gruppen, is an ICA retailer at ICA Maxi Stormarknad in Falköping. Over the last seven years, he has been Chairman of ICA-handlarnas Förbund, and will leave this assignment in conjunction with ICA-handlarnas Förbund’s Annual Meeting in May 2024.
“I feel both honoured and humbled ahead of this assignment which I look forward to taking on after the Annual General Meeting in April. Until then, it is Claes-Göran who will lead the Board as previously and I will continue my work as Chairman of ICA-handlarnas Förbund with unabated vigour until 22 May,” says Magnus Moberg.
