The Board of Directors consists of not less than seven and not more than 23 members, who serve for three years (unless a shorter period has been established by the time of appointment) and may be re-elected. The Board of Directors, at the date of this Report, is composed of 15 directors and was appointed on 12 June 2014 for three years expiring at the General Meeting convened to approve the accounts up to 31 December 2016.
The average age of the members in office is about 58 years with an average term in office of just under 3½ years.
At the Annual Shareholders' Meeting on 12 June 2014, were presented two lists: one by Camfin, which obtained 62.14% of the votes of the capital with voting rights represented at the meeting, and by a group of asset management companies and financial intermediaries4, who got 26.48% of the votes of the capital with voting rights represented at the meeting.
On 10 July 2014 and following changes to the entire Board of Directors from 12 June 2014, C. Sposito, R. Bruno, P. Alonzo E. Nitti, L. Gobbi, E. Parazzini - all drawn from the majority list - resigned. The Board of Directors met again on 10 July 2014 and proceeded to co-opt D. Casimiro, I. Glasenberg, A. Kostin, P. Lazarev, The. Sechin and I. Soglaev to replace the directors who resigned. There was not at that time an Appointments and Successions Committee to assist the Board in replacing the independent directors who had resigned (P. Alonzo; L. Gobbi; E. Nitti), so the whole Board appointed 9 directors, a majority of whom were independent. The Board of Directors has determined, on the basis of available information and the statements made by the parties concerned, that the independence requirements have been met by I. Glasenberg and A. Kostin. The co-opted directors will demit at the next General Meeting.
Updated curricula vitae detailing the personal and professional characteristics of each Director are published on the Pirelli website.
