Sonia Dulá will bring a wealth of experience from the investment banking, technology and media industries, and her deep Latin America expertise will be particularly valuable to Millicom’s Board.

Lars-Johan Jarnheimer will bring a track record of successfully developing and delivering strategies for promoting and selling products and services to consumers in highly competitive environments of complex and highly regulated businesses, including in the telecommunications and media industries.

John Hernander, Chairman of the Nomination Committee, commented: “The Nomination Committee is pleased to propose the election of Bruce Churchill, Sonia Dulá and Lars-Johan Jarnheimer as new Board Directors. The addition of Bruce, Sonia and Lars-Johan will strengthen Millicom’s strategic and operational oversight in the telecommunications, cable and media industries, as well as its operational experience in Latin America, as Millicom’s continues to focus on opportunities in Latin America in its growth journey.”
