Former Board Members
The SCC would like to use this opportunity to thank Mr Yu Jianlong, Professor Alexey A Kostin, Mr Michael J Moser and Ms Margrete Stevens, all of whose terms ended on 31 December 2014, for their service and contributions to the SCC Board.
The very active participation of members of the SCC Board in the SCC decision making process under the SCC Rules is one of the hallmarks of SCC arbitration, and the SCC would like to take this opportunity to express its appreciation of the valuable support from departing Board Members.
The Board of Directors of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce appoints the SCC Board Members for a period of three years. Each Board Member may be re-appointed for one further three year period. The SCC Board is comprised of both Swedish and non-Swedish nationals, all of whom are distinguished and highly qualified experts in international dispute resolution.
