The Michelin Group Supervisory Board

The Michelin supervisory bodies, the Supervisory Board and its Committees are strictly separate from the Management. 

The roles of the Board

The Supervisory Board assesses the quality of the Group’s management and reports on this every year to the shareholders. 
The works by the Board relate to monitoring the Group’s activities and financial position, internal control, and managing the Company’s risks. The Board also rules on the strategy, investments, acquisitions, and sales, as well as on Michelin’s social responsibility policy.  The opinion or agreement of the Supervisory Board is, depending on the case, required for decisions relating to the composition of the Management Board (nomination, renewal of mandate and dismissal of any Manager and the Managing Chairman) and to determining the compensation for any Manager and the Managing Chairman. 

The composition of the Board

The Board currently comprises 11 members: 

  • nine elected by the shareholders during a General Meeting, for a renewable four-year term. They prove solid professional experience, acquired within topflight groups, and offer complementary skills; 

  • two members representing the employees, appointed by the two largest trade unions in France. They undergo training and an induction that aims to help them best perform their duties.
