Airbus SE on April 12 announced its shareholders approved all resolutions proposed at the 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM), including the appointment of a new director and the renewal of three Board members among them the Chief Executive Officer.
Shareholders showed a high level of engagement, with votes totalling 573 million and representing around 73% of the outstanding share capital.
Irene Rummelhoff, Executive Vice President Marketing, Midstream & Processing at Norwegian energy company Equinor ASA, was appointed a non-executive director on the Airbus Board following the AGM’s endorsement. Airbus explains her extensive experience in the field of energy transition and renewables brings important skills to help it achieve long-term sustainability goals.
Shareholders approved the renewal of the Board mandate of Guillaume Faury as executive director and he was formally reappointed Airbus CEO at a Board meeting following the AGM. Catherine Guillouard and Claudia Nemat were re-elected non-executive directors.
To ensure a smooth transition of the Board’s composition, one third of the 12 directors are reappointed or replaced every year, for three-year terms.
During the AGM, it was announced that after five years serving as a non-executive director, Lord Drayson has decided to step down from the Airbus Board to focus on his political and business interests. The Remuneration, Nomination and Governance Committee has begun the search for a suitable replacement.
