Chris Browne nominated for Norwegian Air board

Former Tui Airlines and easyJet director Chris Browne has been recommended for election to the board of Norwegian Air.

She is listed in the ‘Election of Board Members’ section in the agenda for the airline’s AGM, which will be held remotely on June 30.

The company’s board of directors currently consists of the following shareholder-elected members: chairman Niels Smedegaard; deputy chair Liv Berstad; Ingrid Elvira Leisner; Sondre Gravir and Christian Fredrik Stray.

Berstad and Stray have confirmed that they will step down as deputy chair and board member, respectively.

Smedegaard and Leisner will continue in each of their positions for another year, while Gravir is up for re-election for a period of two years.

The nomination committee recommends that Gravir be re-elected as board member and that Chris Browne, Anton Joiner, Jaan Albrecht Binderberger and Vibeke Hammer Madsen be elected as new board members. Individual votes will be held for each candidate.

Browne was chief operating officer at easyJet from 2016 to 2019 before stepping down for personal reasons.

Before that, she was chief operating officer at Tui Airlines from 2014-15, following seven years as managing director of Thomson Airways.

Last month, Norwegian confirmed the completion of a restructuring with a state loan guarantee totalling NOK 3 billion.
