Board members

The management of our business is entrusted upon a Board of Directors currently consisting of 15 directors and their alternates.

Our directors and their alternates were elected or ratified, effective from our Annual General Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting and they will continue to hold office until the next Annual General Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting.

In accordance with the Securities Market Law, at least 25% of the members of the Board of Directors of a public company must be independent. In accordance with our Articles of Incorporation, the majority of the members of our Board of Directors must be independent.

The Company has solid mechanisms for the identification, monitoring and management of relevant risks and the directors have access to management and external advice, if they consider it appropriate, in order to supervise and follow up on such relevant risks. The supervision of the management of relevant risks by the Board of Directors is adaptable to the circumstances and to the changes presented by the risks themselves.

In terms of the provisions of the Securities Market Law, the independent directors of the Corporation must be selected for their experience, capacity and professional reputation, also considering that because of their characteristics they are able to perform their duties free of conflicts of interest and without being subject to personal, property or economic interests. The Shareholders' Meeting shall appoint or ratify the members of the Board of Directors and qualify the independence of the directors, in terms of the Securities Market Law.

Since 2017, in line with international best practices, our Board of Directors has had Corporate Governance Guidelines with diverse policies to support the Board of Directors of the Mexican Stock Exchange in the exercise of their responsibilities. These guidelines cover, among other topics, the composition of our Board, its duties, criteria for eligibility and diversity, relationship with the BMV Group and conflicts of interest, expectations towards Board members, ethics, securities transactions, processes related to the sessions of the Board and Committees, as well as the CEO succession plan.
