Amsterdam, 1 March 2022 – Airbus SE (stock exchange symbol: AIR) has published the agenda for its Annual General Meeting (AGM) taking place on 12 April 2022, with resolutions including the proposed appointment of a new director and the renewal of the Board mandates of Chief Executive Officer Guillaume Faury and two other directors.
One resolution proposes the appointment of Irene Rummelhoff as a non-executive director, replacing Carlos Tavares whose Board mandate expires at the close of the AGM and hasn’t sought re-election. Irene Rummelhoff is Executive Vice President Marketing, Midstream & Processing at Norwegian energy company Equinor ASA and a member of its Corporate Executive Committee. Her extensive expertise in the energy sector, including in the field of energy transition and renewables, would bring important skills to help the Company achieve its long-term sustainability goals.
The resolutions also include the proposed re-appointment of Guillaume Faury as an executive member of the Board, along with non-executive members Catherine Guillouard and Claudia Nemat.
Airbus Board mandates are renewed every year in blocks of four, for terms of three years, in order to ensure a smooth transition of the Board’s composition. This also avoids large block replacements of directors at any single AGM. With these proposed renewals and new appointment, the Company would increase the proportion of female directors on the Board to 33% from 25% currently.
Also on the voting agenda is the proposed payment of a 2021 gross dividend of € 1.50 per share, as communicated in the Full-Year results disclosure on 17 February.
The set-up of the 2022 AGM in Amsterdam reflects the improved COVID-19 situation compared to last year and the latest guidelines in the Netherlands. Registered shareholders are welcome to attend while the option remains to vote remotely by proxy. Any changes to the organisation of the event will be communicated via the AGM page of the Airbus website.
