Board Members

The Board of Directors is comprised of up to 11 members, most of whom are independent. They are elected at the shareholders’ meeting, and receive a two-year mandate with the possibility of reelection. The Board’s main functions are to define the strategy of the Company, approve the annual budget, and ensure its proper implementation. It also decides when to convene the shareholders’ meeting, how to allocate profits, conduct elections, remove and monitor the Executive Directors and select the independent auditors.

The shareholders’ meeting is held every two months, and extraordinarily, whenever necessary.
