Our Organization

Michelin’s governance is a solid, stable process focused on the long-term responsibility of its executives, with a clear separation of management and supervisory powers.


Compagnie Générale des Établissements Michelin, the Group's parent company, is organized as a partnership limited by shares. This form of corporate organization ensures that the deployment of a long-term strategy is fully aligned with shareholder interests.

  • The company is administered and managed by the Managers, who are elected by shareholders at the Annual Meeting for renewable four-year terms. As a General Partner, the Managing Chairman is personally liable for Michelin's debts.
  • The Supervisory Board exercises permanent oversight of Michelin's management and assesses its quality every year on behalf of the shareholders.
