Board in general
Metso’s Board consists of five to eight members, which the Annual General Meeting elects for a term that lasts until the end of the next Annual General Meeting. According to the Finnish Act on Personnel Representation in the Administration of Undertakings, a personnel representative participates in the meetings as an invited expert with no voting rights or legal liability for the Board’s decisions. There is no specific order of appointment of Board members.
The Board is convened by the Chairman, or if the Chairman is unavailable, by the Vice Chairman. The Board has a quorum when more than half of the members are present and one of these is the Chairman or the Vice Chairman. A decision of the Board shall be carried by a majority of those present or, in the case of a tie, the Chairman shall have the casting vote. Metso’s President and CEO, and CFO, participate in the Board meetings, and General Counsel, acts as Secretary of the Board. Other Metso Executive Team members and other executives participate in the meetings when needed.
