Governance

Since 22 May, 2014 Assystem has been a public limited liability company with a Board of Directors. This method of administration provides governance more closely aligned with management, while ensuring adequate oversight by the independent directors.
Assystem’s senior management attaches great importance to the efficiency of its process for making important decisions and the smooth flow of information within the Group. This constant concern is largely due to its highly decentralised organisation and continues to play a relevant role as the company gradually grows more global.

Board of
Directors

Mission

The Board of Directors sets the strategic, economic and financial policies of Assystem’s businesses, and oversees their successful implementation.

Subject to the powers expressly granted to shareholders and within the limits of the corporate purpose, the Board examines any and all matters concerning the smooth running of Assystem at the initiative of its president, and in its deliberations it rules on the matters that concern it. These include all strategic decisions for Assystem and the Group.

To carry out its tasks effectively, the Board receives regular and comprehensive information on the matters submitted to it prior to its meetings, and on all matters on the agenda including the quarterly reports on the management of the company.

The Board meets as often as the interests of the Company require it to, and at least three times a year.

Composition

The Assystem Board of Directors consists of five members, including three independent members(*), all appointed for a renewable term of three years.


On 5 June 2015, Mr. Philippe Chevallier was appointed Deputy CEO and CFO by the Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors has established two special committees, an Audit Committee and a Remuneration and Appointments Committee.

The rules of procedure of the Board of Directors, which is available for shareholders at the Company’s head office and also on this website, determine the responsibilities of the Board and of its committees. They specify the Board’s mode of operation and the procedures for implementing legal requirements and statutory provisions concerning its role in the management of Assystem. The rules also mention the rights and duties of the Members of the Board, particularly regarding the prevention of conflicts of interest, the strict confidentiality of its deliberations and the relevant despatch for participating in its work. They also set down the rules on transactions involving Assystem’s shares, as recommended by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers.
