Ahead of the next general meeting of shareholders to be held on May 19, 2020, the Arkema Board of Directors, at their meeting today, unanimously decided to propose the renewal of the directorship of Mr. Thierry Le Hénaff, for a period of four years.
Provided that the General Meeting renews Mr. Thierry Le Hénaff’s mandate as director, the Board of Directors intends to reappoint him as Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of Arkema.
Building on the Group’s progress and performance during his last term of office, this decision once again reflects the Board of Directors’ confidence in Thierry Le Hénaff’s ability to continue the successful development of the Group.
I am extremely honored by the confidence that the Board of Directors has placed in me once again. If the shareholders so decide, I will continue to lead Arkema with great pride, buoyed by the constant commitment and support of the Group's employees, as part of a project that is both ambitious, in terms of creating value for our all of our stakeholders, and demanding, in terms of corporate social responsibility.
