SWEDEN- Nordic financial group Carnegie has announced plans to promote Karin Forseke to the role of chief executive on the retirement of Lars Bertmar. Forseke currently works in London as head of Carnegie’s international securities operations and will return to Sweden for her new role.

At an ordinary shareholders’ meeting to be held on 13 March next year Bertmar, who has served as CEO since 1990, will be put forward as executive chairman of the board.

Christer Zetterberg, non executive chairman at the bank will be proposed as non executive vice chairman and chairman of the audit committee.

The change in Carnegie’s leadership has been spurred by the forthcoming retirement of Bertmar and the group decided to come up with a replacement as soon as possible.

Carnegie has SEK60bn (e6.5bn) in assets under management.
