At the General Meeting, SFL's shareholders elected Sylvia Desazars de Montgailhard to serve as an independent director for a three-year term.
Her election was proposed by the Remuneration and Selection Committee, which was advised by an independent consulting firm. The Committee obtained assurance that she had the experience and expertise required to serve as a director and noted that her election would contribute to the goal of achieving gender parity on the Board.
