Board Members

The Company has adopted a governance model commonly known as "reinforced Latin” model, which advocates a separation between the roles of supervision and that of the Management as well as a double supervisory mechanism consisting of a supervisory board and a statutory auditor.

The corporate governance model adopted by the Company is considered adequate and appropriate for the following reasons:

  • it embodies a framework of principles of corporate governance and good practice designed to promote greater transparency and a high level of professionalism and competence;
  • it ensures the alignment of interests across the Organization, specifically among shareholders, members of the governing bodies, officers and other employees of the Company;
  • it encourages shareholder participation in the life of the Company;
  • it fosters the efficiency and competitiveness of CORTICEIRA AMORIM.
