San Donato Milanese (Milan), 29 July 2015 – The Board of Directors of Eni has today co-opted Alessandro Profumo as Director replacing Luigi Zingales, who resigned on 2 July 2015.
The Nomination Committee supported the Board in the evaluations.
Alessandro Profumo is a non-executive, independent Director and now he is not a member of any internal committee.
With reference to Director Alessandro Profumo’s marriage to a company employee, the Board of Directors, confirming the evaluation of the previous Board, has stated that this relationship does not compromise the independence requirements of the Corporate Governance Code, taking into account the ethical scrupulousness and professional and international reputation of the Director and the fact that his spouse is employed at a foundation, which is independent of Eni SpA.
Regarding the office of Chairman held by Alessandro Profumo in Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA, the relationship between this office and Eni does not impair the Director’s independence requirements, insofar as it is not relevant in scope; the office will terminate however on 6 August 2015.
His curriculum vitae is available on the Company’s website www.eni.com under the section "Governance/Board of Directors".
Alessandro Profumo holds no shares in Eni.
