Ceo in board of directors
Are the CEO and the Chairman of the Board the Same Person?
From a historical perspective, the CEO and the Chairman of the Board have served in the same position. With some of the evolutionary changes in best practices that have resulted from regulatory and legal changes, there has been a lot of discussion about whether companies should appoint a board chair that is not also the CEO of the company. Current trends are moving in the direction of separating the Chairman of the Board and CEO roles.
Why the CEO Shouldn’t Also Be the Board Chair
If the CEO does not connect with the board or have a good rapport with the chair that can cause problems. Board members are busy people, but when recruiting a new CEO, it may be worth meeting them in person rather than just reviewing their CV. That gives the board a sense of whether they can build a partnership with the candidate. The ability for both sides to communicate honestly and openly is essential.
A consistent focus on the premium segment.
Pursuant to the Board Rules, the Audit Committee, which is required to meet at least four times a year, makes recommendations to the Board of Directors on the approval of the annual financial statements (FY) and the interim (Q1, H1, Q3) accounts, as well as the appointment of external auditors and the determination of their remuneration.

How to deal with conflicts between Board and CEO
The guideline is meant to help Boards led by non-executive chairmen understand the defining activities and attributes of the best CEO-board relationships — relationships that consistently contribute to organizational performance and superior results. Our guideline provides boards and CEOs with a clear understanding of the issues of an effective CEO-board relationship and to enable boards and CEOs to both assess and improve their current performance in delivering against each of these relationship attributes.
Creating values together with the markets
The board meetings begin with a discussion of the company’s financial situation, with costs and sales as the main focus. The board goes through the various financial reports and the annual report and verifies these before they are published. The board meetings also discuss matters such as overall strategy, expansion and dividend policy.
