Speaking about his appointment, Anders told 4BR: "It is with great humility that I take on this important role.

I want to thank Ulf Rosenberg for everything he has done as a chairman for the past decade and more, and we are all greatly reassured that he will continue to play a hugely important role as part of the board."
