A few days ago, LEGO announced some changes to their Board of Directors with with one member stepping down and another joins. CEO of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd Kåre Schultz left the Board while Netflix Board of Director Anne Sweeney joins LEGO. These changes probably won’t affect us consumers directly but Sweeney did work for Disney, ABC, Nickelodeon, and Fox so she does have a great entertainment background which could help LEGO in that aspect.

The LEGO Group today announced two changes to its Board of Directors as Kåre Schultz, CEO Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd steps down and Anne Sweeney, a member of the Board of Directors at Netflix, joins with immediate effect.

Anne is also a member of the Board of Trustees at the Mayo Clinic, and a Deans Distinguished Fellow at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education.

Prior to embarking on a new chapter in the entertainment industry in 2015, Anne was Co-Chair, Disney Media Networks, and President, Disney/ABC Television Group, which includes The Walt Disney Company’s global entertainment and news television properties, owned television stations group, as well as radio and publishing businesses.

Anne has a BA degree from The College of New Rochelle and an Ed. M. degree from Harvard University.

Chairman of the Board of Directors, Thomas Kirk Kristiansen, commented:

“LEGO A/S has developed tremendously since 2007 when Kåre Schultz first joined as a Member of the Board. I would like to thank Kåre for his dedicated contributions to this development over more than 12 years. Furthermore, I am pleased to welcome Anne Sweeney as a new Member of the Board. Anne brings key strategic competencies within entertainment, learning and digitalisation from an impressive career. I am looking very much forward to be working with Anne on the Board.”

The changes were announced at the company’s Annual General Assembly this week. No further changes to the Board were made.
