The Board has set up a Nominations Committee whose composition, role, mission and functioning are described in its internal rules, which form an Appendix to the Charter.

A majority of the members of the Nominations Committee are independent non-executive directors.

The Chairman of the Executive Committee is invited to meetings, except for matters that concern him personally.

The Secretary of this Committee is Mr. Michel Defourny.

The committee met three times in 2016. Attendance by the members of the Nomination Committee was very high (100 %)

The Nominations Committee gives its opinion on appointments to the Board of Directors (Chairman, new members, renewals and committees), to Executive Committee positions (Chairmanship and members) and to general management positions.
