We have adopted a succession plan, to be implemented in the event of the unexpected resignation of the CEO or other key figures.
In the event of the unexpected resignation of the CEO, the chairman assumes the role on an interim basis to enable the board and the appointments and corporate governance committee to select the new CEO. Only nine out of 40 companies on the FTSE MIB index have adopted such a plan.
The board has also approved a succession plan for other key figures of the group, such as the management committee (GMC) and the global leadership group (GLG). This comprises about 200 strategic roles in the group – the managerial core of the company.
