San Donato Milanese (Milan), 28 October 2016 – Yesterday, Eni’s Board of Directors changed the composition of the Watch Structure pursuant to legislative decree no. 231 of 2001. Following consultation with the Nomination Committee and the Board of Statutory Auditors, Eni’s Board of Directors has appointed Marco Bollini, Senior Executive Vice President Legal Affairs Department and Luca Franceschini, Executive Vice President Integrated Compliance, as internal members of the Watch Structure, replacing Massimo Mantovani who has assumed the position of Chief Midstream Gas & Power Officer. The decision follows the recent approval by the Board of Directors of changes to the Company’s organizational structure with the creation of the new Integrated Compliance Department, reporting directly to the CEO and separated from the Legal Department.
The other members of the Watch Structure are: Marco Petracchini, Senior Executive Vice President Internal Audit Department and Domenico Noviello, Executive Vice President Labour Law and Dispute as internal members; Attilio Befera (Chairman), Ugo Draetta, Claudio Varrone are external members. The provisions of the Model 231 have been integrated in order to ensure, in the decision-making mechanism of the Watch Structure, the prevalence of the votes cast by the external members.
