Rome, Italy, 2011/05/02 - The new Board of Directors of Enel SpA, appointed by the Ordinary Shareholders' Meeting of April 29th, met today for the first time under the chairmanship of Paolo Andrea Colombo. IT0003128367
The Board confirmed Fulvio Conti as Chief Executive Officer and General Manager of the Company.
The Board also confirmed the existing attribution of powers, granting to the Chairman, Paolo Andrea Colombo, the same competence held by the former Chairman and assigning the Chief Executive Officer the same powers delegated under the previous mandate.
The Board also verified that the directors Alessandro Banchi, Mauro Miccio, Pedro Solbes, Angelo Taraborrelli and Gianfranco Tosi met the independence requirements provided for by both the Unified Financial Act and the Italian Corporate Governance Code for Listed Companies (hereinafter “the Corporate Governance Code”).
With regard to the latter aspect, the Board took note that none of the aforesaid directors has or had in the preceding fiscal year, either directly or indirectly, any commercial, financial or professional relationship with the Company.
In addition, the Board of Directors, applying the general principle of the prevalence of substance over form indicated in Article 3.C.1 of the Corporate Governance Code, determined that the director Gianfranco Tosi also met the independence requirements set out in the Code, giving precedence to the experience and skills that he can contribute to the Board over the merely temporal consideration that he has been an Enel director for more than nine years out of the last twelve.
Finally, the Board will provide in a subsequent meeting to appoint between its members the different Committees.
