  • the renewal of the Board of Directors: nomination of four new directors, Mrs. Mouna Sepehri and Messrs. Robert Brunck, Cyrille Duval and Francisco Pérez. These new directors replace Messrs. Ervin Rosenberg and Jacques Garaïalde, members of the Board of Directors of Nexans since 2001, and Mr. Jean-Marie Chevalier. The Board is particularly grateful for their contribution. The shareholders also approved the renewal of four directors, Messrs. Gianpaolo Caccini, Georges Chodron de Courcel, Jérôme Gallot and Nicolas de Tavernost;

The demand for the highest standards in term of corporate governance
“The resolutions adopted by the shareholders consolidate the good practices already in force within Nexans in term of corporate governance. We have paid a special attention to update the internal regulation of the Board, in line with the recommendations of the AFEP-MEDEF Corporate Governance Code. Our transparency with regard to corporate governance practices has been reinforced over the years. The strong commitment of the Board and the presence of the Board members on my side for strategic decisions have been particularly crucial”, says Frédéric Vincent, Chairman and CEO.

Further to this shareholders’ meeting, the Board now includes 3 women (representing over 20% of directors) and 3 non-French nationals. The Board as renewed maintains a 50% independence rate.
