The Board of Directors

The Board of Directors plays a key role in the organization, development and activities of Cherry Bank.

The Board of Directors is vested with all powers of ordinary and extraordinary administration, with the exception of those powers reserved strictly by law or by the Articles of Association for the Shareholders’ Meeting. The Board of Directors consists of nine to eleven members who meet the requirements of the current regulatory provisions for persons performing administrative functions at banks and must reflect an appropriate degree of diversification in terms of, among other things, skills, experience, age, and gender.

Today, the Board of Directors of Cherry Bank is composed – in accordance with the provisions of the Articles of Association – of 9 members, elected on November 10, 2021 by the Bank’s Shareholders’ Meeting for the financial years 2021/2022/2023 and will therefore expire with the approval of the financial statements for the year 2023.
The current Board of Directors can count on four independent directors and one-third by members of the least represented gender.
