Recticel, The passion for Comfort

welcome to the recticel group website

Board of Directors

Recticel’s Board of Directors currently consists of ten members. There are nine non-executive directors, five of which are independent.

 

OLIVIER CHAPELLE SPRL/BVBA, represented by Mr Olivier CHAPELLE, Chief Executive Officer, is the executive director. The Chief Executive Officer represents the management and three directors represent the reference shareholder.

 

With reference to the Law of 28 July 2011 setting the obligation to have at least 1/3 of the members of the Board of the opposite gender by 1 January 2017, the Board of Directors reviewed different options in order to increase the number of female members. The mandate of REVAM BVBA, permanently represented by Mr Wilfried VANDEPOEL comes to an end at the Ordinary General Meeting of 30 May 2017. The Board of Directors proposes to appoint IPGM Consulting GmbH, represented by Ms. Anne De Vos, resulting in three out of ten directors being women. As a result, the obligation of article 518bis of the Companies’ Code will be complied with.

 

The following table provides an overview of the current members of Recticel's Board of Directors (as from 31 May 2016).
