Further, as Chairman of the Board, the Nomination Committee proposes re-election of Jonas Wollin. The current Board member Johan Thiel has declined re-election.

Rajesh Varma, born 1965, is a graduate of the University of Michigan (BSE 1986 and MBA 1988). He began his career at Fidelity in Hong Kong as an analyst covering Asian markets. Between 1991 and 1993 he worked in a hedge fund in Hong Kong (Arral Associates – the first Asian hedge fund) covering Asia and technology. In 1993, he set up an Asia hedge fund at KI Pacific AM based in London. In 1997, he joined Montgomery AM in San Francisco as fund manager specializing in several global sectors. At the end of 2000, he moved to Paris, where he worked for two years at Eurazeo.

He joined the DNCA Finance management team in September 2010.

His focus on long term strategy and views on rapidly changing technologies and their ensuing effects are well complemented by his background in engineering and finance.
