Board of Directors

With the approval of the new Articles of Association, the Board’s composition has been streamlined to provide for a maximum of fifteen members, at least one-third of whom must be women and one-third independent. 

Mediobanca’s tireless efforts at improving its governance are well reflected in the changes made to the composition of the Board of Directors, the governing body with responsibility for the Group’s strategic supervision.

The current Board of Directors, appointed on 28 October 2017, reflects the shift in this direction with a total of 15 members (*), compared to eighteen members in the previous term of office, one-third of who are women and more then half of who qualify as independent according to the definition provided in Article 19 of the Articles of Association, plus two Directors appointed by minority shareholders.

 (*) Following the resignation of César Alierta and Massimo Tononi, on 20 September 2018, the BoD co-opted Maximo Ibarra and Vittorio Pignatti-Morano Campori.
