We are pleased to announce that the shareholders of RHI Magnesita have today approved the appointment of Katarina Lindström as an Independent Non-Executive Director, taking female representation on our Board of Directors to 33% and reaching our target of 33% by 2025. Nonetheless, the Board is already challenging itself in its diversity policy to reach 45% representation in due course.

Katarina has an extensive international career focusing on operational transformation through continuous improvement, and on the value-chain, at both executive and board level. She has held positions in Sweden and Japan at Volvo Group, as well as roles at Munters AB in Sweden and Hempel A/S in Denmark.

Chairman of the Board, Herbert Cordt commented: “We are delighted to formally welcome Katarina to our Company. Katarina has been attending Board meetings in an observer capacity since November 2023 and we can already see the value that her skills and expertise, particularly in operations, is bringing to the Company.”

Katarina commented: “I have enjoyed the opportunity to get to know RHI Magnesita in the last few months and I am looking forward to further bringing my operational knowledge and experience to the Board to steer the RHI Magnesita Group in realising their aspirations.”

With the appointment of Katarina, RHI Magnesita’s Board of Directors now numbers 15 members.
