During its meeting held on Monday May 10, 2021, AXA’s Board of Directors acknowledged Mrs. Irene Dorner’s resignation from the Board as she wishes to devote more time to her role as Chairwoman of Taylor Wimpey Plc (United Kingdom) which she assumed in February 2020.
The Board of Directors, following the recommendation of its Compensation & Governance Committee, decided to coopt Mrs. Clotilde Delbos to the Board with immediate effect for the remainder of Mrs. Irene Dorner’s mandate, i.e. until the Shareholders’ Meeting called to approve the financial statements of the 2023 fiscal year. Ratification of her cooptation will be proposed at AXA’s next Shareholders’ Meeting.
Mrs. Clotilde Delbos’ candidacy was selected by the Board of Directors mainly due to her executive officer profile and her strong financial expertise. She is currently Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Renault Group, which she joined in 2012 and where she served as interim Chief Executive Officer from October 2019 to July 2020.
Mrs. Clotilde Delbos is also appointed member of the Audit Committee, the Chairmanship of which has been entrusted by the Board of Directors, following the recommendation of its Compensation & Governance Committee, to Mrs. Isabel Hudson.
On behalf of AXA’s Board of Directors, I would like to address our warmest thanks to Irene Dorner for her contribution to the work of the Board of Directors and its Audit Committee over the past five years. Her financial sector expertise has been a key element of AXA’s development over the last few years. I would also like to warmly welcome Clotilde Delbos to our Board.
