Lene Skole was re-elected as Deputy Chairman, and Lynda Armstrong, Pia Gjellerup, Peter Korsholm and Benny D. Loft as members of the Board of Directors. Further, Dieter Wemmer and Jørgen Kildahl were elected as new members of the Board of Directors, which means that Ørsted goes from six to eight board members and in addition three board members elected by the Ørsted employees.
