Matti Kavetvuo resigns from the Konecranes board
On 31 December 2015 Matti Kavetvuo announced his resignation from the board of directors of Konecranes. Over recent years Kavetvuo has given up other positions of trust and says that it is time to resign also from his last board membership in a listed company. The resignation is not related to Konecranes Plc or the merger with Terex Corporation, other than indirectly in relation to the work load, which is due to increase significantly at this point as a consequence of merger preparations.
There are no other changes to the composition of Konecranes Plc’s board of directors. Stig Gustavson, Chairman of the Board of Konecranes said "Matti Kavetvuo joined Konecranes’ board of directors in 2001. I want to thank Matti for his valuable contribution as a member of the board for 15 years. I fully understand Matti's reasoning and find his decision to resign very prudent in a situation when he finds it difficult to cope with the significant increase in the work load now ahead of us in preparing for the merger."
