Board of Directors: duties and composition

The Board of Directors presides over all decisions relating to the Group’s major strategic, economic, corporate, financial and technological policies and monitors the implementation of these policies by the senior management. The current Board of Directors comprises 15 members, including seven Independent Directors, three Directors representing the public sector, three Directors representing the employees and one Director representing employee shareholders. In accordance with the regulation amended by the Annual General Meeting on 27 May 2008, each new Board member is appointed for a term of four years.

 

The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, meanwhile, has the greatest power to act on the company’s behalf. His exercise of these powers is limited by the scope of the company’s objectives and conforms to both French law and internal regulations set out by the Board of Directors. He is supported in this task by three Associate Chiefs Executive Officers and the Executive Committee.
