Decision by the Board of Directors


Carrefour’s Board of Directors, at its meeting today, decided, on the recommendation of the Appointments Committee, to propose to the June 15, 2018 General Meeting of Shareholders, to renew the mandates of Patricia Lemoine, Mathilde Lemoine, Philippe Houzé, Nicolas Bazire and Alexandre Bompard. In addition, the Board decided to nominate four new independent directors: Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, Aurore Domont, Stéphane Israël and Stéphane Courbit, replacing Diane Labruyère-Cuilleret, Georges Ralli and Bertrand de Montesquiou, whose mandates expire at the June 15, 2018 Annual General Meeting, and Anne-Claire Taittinger, who announced her decision to terminate her mandate.

Thus, the Board of Directors is continuing its renewal, which began in 2017, welcoming more female members as well as younger and more digital personalities.

I would like to highlight their commitment and contribution to Carrefour's Board of Directors throughout their terms.

The Board of Directors has decided to propose to the Shareholders’ Assembly the nominations of Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, Aurore Domont, Stéphane Israël and Stéphane Courbit.
