H&M to appoint Danica Kragic Jensfelt to board
H&M’s nomination committee is proposing that Danica Kragic Jensfelt is elected to its board of directors at its annual general meeting on 7 May.
Kragic Jensfelt is a professor of computer science at KTH Royal Institute of Technology where she conducts research in the fields of computer vision and robotics. The aim of the study is to use sensors to build future systems that interact with people and their environment in a natural way.
A member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences, she is currently a member of the boards of FAM, a Wallenberg family foundation, SAAB and the Institute for Future Studies.
Stefan Persson, H&M chairman, said: “Danica has unique expertise within computer science and AI and how this can be used in robotisation, logistics and recycling as well as within fashion and the shopping experience.
“In view of the great transition that is taking place in fashion retail as a result of increasing digitalisation, Danica’s knowledge will be very valuable to the H&M group in the time ahead.”
The nomination committee is also proposing that current board members Stina Bergfors, Anders Dahlvig, Lena Patriksson Keller, Stefan Persson, Christian Sievert, Erica Wiking Häger and Niklas Zennström are all re-elected and that Persson is re-elected as chairman of the board.
