Presentation of the resolution
The ninth resolution proposes the appointment of Wouter De Ploey as Director. He would replace Emiel Van Broekhoven, who did not request the renewal of his term of office. Wouter De Ploey (aged 50) holds a Master’s Degree in Economics and Philosophy from Université de Louvain as well as a PhD in Economics from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor). Before serving as Chief Executive Officer of ZNA (Antwerp’s leading hospital network), Wouter de Ploey had been Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company, which he joined in 1992. In the Business Technology Office, he had specialised in the operational and organisational impacts of new information and communication technologies, especially on the banking sector. The Board of directors believes that the composition of BNP Paribas’ share capital and the absence of potential conflicts of interest guarantee the independence of Wouter De Ploey.
