Afep and Medef have decided to appoint Mr. Thierry de La Tour d'Artaise as Chairman of the High Committee for Corporate Governance as of July 1, 2023, replacing Mrs. Patricia Barbizet who will cease to exercise her functions on that date, becoming Chairman of Afep on the same date.
Thierry de La Tour d'Artaise, born in 1954 and a graduate of ESCP, was Chairman and CEO of Groupe SEB from 2000 to 2022. He has been Chairman of the Board of Directors since 2022.
Mr. Laurent Burelle and Mr. Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux warmly thank Ms. Patricia Barbizet for the work she has accomplished as Chair of the High Committee since 2018 and for her commitment to demanding governance of listed companies.
The High Committee for Corporate Governance (HCGE) is responsible for monitoring the application of the Afep-Medef Code. Since its creation in 2013, it has established itself as a recognized authority on the governance of listed companies. It ensures the effective application of the fundamental rule of corporate governance "complain or explain".
The High Committee is made up of nine individuals recognized for their competence and experience. Five of them hold, or have held, corporate mandates in companies that refer to the Afep-Medef code. 4 other members have been chosen to represent investors and/or to give the High Committee the benefit of their expertise in the fields of law and ethics.
The members are appointed by Afep and Medef for a period of 3 years, renewable once. The chairman is chosen from among persons who hold or have held corporate mandates in companies that refer to the Afep-Medef code.
The members of the High Committee exercise their mandate on a voluntary basis and in complete independence. They are required to declare their mandates as directors or members of supervisory boards of listed companies.
