Afep and Medef have decided to appoint Thierry de La Tour d’Artaise as Chairman of the High Committee for Corporate Governance as of July 1, 2023, replacing Mrs. Patricia Barbizet who will cease to exercise her functions on that date, becoming Chairman of Afep on the same date. Thierry de La Tour d’Artaise, born in 1954 and a graduate of ESCP, was Chairman and CEO of Groupe SEB from 2000 to 2022. He has been Chairman of the Board of Directors since 2022.

The High Committee for Corporate Governance (HCGE) is responsible for monitoring the application of the Afep-Medef Code. Since its creation in 2013, it has established itself as a recognized authority on the governance of listed companies. It ensures the effective application of the fundamental rule of corporate governance “complain or explain”.

The High Committee is made up of nine individuals recognized for their competence and experience. Five of them hold, or have held, corporate mandates in companies that refer to the Afep-Medef code. 4 other members have been chosen to represent investors and/or to give the High Committee the benefit of their expertise in the fields of law and ethics.
