APPOINTMENT OF DOMINIQUE D'HINNIN
TO EDENRED'S BOARD OF DIRECTORS


 

  
  

At its meeting on June 8, 2017, Edenred's Board of Directors appointed Dominique D'Hinnin as a Director of Edenred. Shareholders will be asked to ratify this appointment at the Annual Shareholders' Meeting to be held to approve the 2017 financial statements.

Dominique D'Hinnin is currently a member of the Board of Directors of Eutelsat Communications SA, leading satellite operator in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, of Spanish media group PRISA, and of Belgian retail group Louis Delhaize SA.

His term as a Director of Edenred will expire at the Annual Shareholders' Meeting called to approve the financial statements for 2019. This corresponds to the period remaining for the term of Nadra Moussalem, who is resigning from his position as a Director of Edenred following Colony Capital's sale of its stake in the Group in January 2017. 

Dominique D'Hinnin, 57, is a French citizen and a graduate of Ecole Normale Supérieure and Ecole Nationale d'Administration. He began his career in 1986 with France's Inspection des Finances before joining Lagardère as Chief Internal Auditor in 1990. In 1993, he became Chief Financial Officer of Hachette Livre and went on to be named Executive Vice President of Grolier Inc (Connecticut, USA) in 1994. In 1998, he was appointed Chief Financial Officer of the Lagardère group, where he also held the position of co-managing partner between 2009 and 2016.

By decision of Edenred's Board of Directors, Dominique D'Hinnin will also be a member of the Audit and Risks Committee.

Bertrand Dumazy, Chairman and CEO of Edenred, said: "I'm very pleased that the Board has decided to appoint Dominique D'Hinnin as a Director of Edenred. His financial experience and contribution to the Boards of other companies, both listed and unlisted, make Dominique the perfect candidate for this role as a Director of Edenred.

On the Board's behalf, I extend our heartfelt thanks to Nadra Moussalem for his contribution to the Board since the Company's initial public offering in 2010. His strategic vision and his role in the transition of our governance have been decisive factors in the Group's development".
