Magnus Furugård, President and Managing Director of Sweden-based investor-corporate engagement
services provider GES and one of the pioneers of investor/corporate engagement, is stepping down from
day-to-day management of the firm to become its chairman. Hanna Roberts, a former chair of Amnesty
International’s International Executive Committee who has been with GES for eight years, will move up
from her role as GES’s Engagement Director to become CEO.
She will be succeeded as Engagement Director by Josiane Fanguinovény, who joined
GES when it absorbed the five-strong Stewardship Services arm of Governance for Owners last year. The
changes take place from September 1.
