FCC completes restructuring of Board of Directors with appointment of 3 independent Board Directors

FCC has completed the restructuring of its Board of Directors which began in January with representatives from Control Empresarial de Capitales S.A. de C.V. On this occasion it was the turn of the independent Board Directors, as was announced at the time. Manuel Gil Madrigal, Henri Proglio and Álvaro Vázquez de Lapuerta have replaced Oliver Orsini, Gonzalo Rodríguez Mourullo and Gustavo Villapalos. The highest governing body of the Citizen Services Group has been reduced to 12 members after the exit of Larranza XXI S.L., represented by Lourdes Martínez Zabala, as was anticipated after the restructuring of B1998.

The three new independent Board Directors of FCC were selected by means of a prestigious Board Director selection firm.

Manuel Gil Madrigal, a Law and Business Administration graduate (E-3) from ICADE, is a founding member of the company Tasmania Gestión. In the year 2000, he was also founding member of the financial company N+1 and has been a board director of Ezentis, Funespaña, General de Alquiler de Maquinaria (GAM) and Campofrío, amongst other companies. Throughout his professional career, he has also held the position of director of Capital Markets at AB Asesores Bursátiles, partner at Morgan Stanley and auditor at Arthur Andersen.

Henri Proglio, a graduate from the School of Business Administration (HEC) in Paris, will become chairman of Thales as of next May. He is currently on the Board of Directors at Natixis Banque and Dassault Aviation. He was also chairman of energy 'giant' Électricité de France (2009-2014) and Veolia Environnement (2003-2009), as well as board director of FCC, Grupo Lagardère and Vinci, amongst other companies.

Álvaro Vázquez de Lapuerta, a Law and Business Administration graduate (E-3) from ICADE, is currently a partner at the firms Akiba Partners and Meridia Capital Partners. He was Chief Executive Officer for Spain and Portugal at Dresdner Kleinwort and Managing Director and Head of Investor Relations at securities firm BBVA Bolsa. He previously held other positions of responsibility at JP Morgan in Mexico, New York, London and Madrid.

Further to these appointments, the Appointments and Retribution Committee approved the appointment of Miguel Martínez Parra as new Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer. A graduate of Business and Economics with a diploma in Business Strategy Development from the University of Anáhuac (Mexico), Martínez Parra was, until joining FCC, Director of Finance and Social Infrastructure at the Mexican infrastructure company Impulsora del Desarrollo y el Empleo en América Latina S.A. de C.V. (IDEAL). He previously held the position of Credit Analyst Manager and Head of Investor Relations at Grupo Financiero Inbursa S.A.B de C.V.
