Board of Directors
Imerys’ Board of Directors has been headed since June 25, 2019 by Patrick Kron. With support from its committees, the Board of Directors exercises permanent control over the management of the Group and approves its strategic priorities, as well as the main focuses of its corporate social responsibility strategy. The Board also approves all significant operations affecting the Group’s future and ensures its governance structure is fit for purpose.
Since 2018, the offices of the Chairman of the Board of Directors and of the Chief Executive Officer, have been separated. The separation seeks to ensure Imerys’ governance bodies operate effectively and foster complementary skills and experience among their members.
The Board of Directors is made up of:
- 12 members, including 2 directors representing employees
- 6 female directors (i.e. 40%, excluding employee representative directors)
- 6 independent directors (i.e. 60%, excluding employee representative directors)
- 1 non-voting observer
- 7 nationalities, including the non-voting observer
The composition of the Board of Directors allows the Group to take advantage of the diverse spectrum of capabilities and professional experiences accumulated by its members from across a variety of industries and countries.

The specialized committees report to the Board of Directors, assisting in an advisory capacity. They give opinions and make recommendations on which the Board bases its decisions.
The proportion of independent members in the composition of the Specialized Committees complies with the recommendations of the AFEP-MEDEF Code.
