Recticel, The passion for Comfort

welcome to the recticel group website

Board of Directors

Recticel’s Board of Directors currently consists of twelve members. There are eleven non-executive directors, six 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 four directors represent the reference shareholder.

 

With reference to the Law of 28 July 2011 setting the obligation to have, by 1 January 2017, at least 1/3 of the members of the Board of the opposite gender, the Board is committed to comply with this obligation in due time. Since the introduction of the law two additional female directors were appointed and hence currently three of the twelve members of the Board of Directors are of the opposite gender. If the proposed changes in the Board of Directors are approved by the Ordinary General meeting of 31 May 2016, two out of ten directors shall be women. The Board of Directors is currently reviewing different options in order to increase the number of female members.


The following table provides an overview of the current members of Recticel's Board of Directors (06 May 2016).
