The Company’s highest management body was created to ensure the professionalization and sustainability of its business, conduct the decision-making process, and define and follow winning strategies. The Board consists of six members, two of whom are independent.
The Board of Directors is supported by three specialized, non-deliberative advisory committees that assist its members in deepening their analysis and understanding of specific issues when making decisions. The members of the committees are elected annually by the Board of Directors, to which they report directly. Just as the Board of Directors, the Committees also have internal regulations that provide for their functioning and define their responsibilities and attributions.
