The LEGO Group announced in early May 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.

Sweeney 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 of Disney Media Networks, and President of 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.

Sweeney 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.
