Members of the Board of Directors

The Annual General Meeting on 17 March 2020 set  the number of Board members at eight(8). Members of the Board of Directors elected by the Annual General Meeting are:

  Position Nationality Year of birth
Chaim Katzman Chairman Israel and United States 1949
Ariella Zochovitzky Deputy Chairman Israel 1957
Arnold de Haan Member Netherlands 1954
Alexandre (Sandy) Koifman Member France and Switzerland 1953

Per-Anders Ovin Member Sweden 1956

Please see the introduction of the Board of Directors

All Board members, with exception of Ofer Stark, are independent of the company. Citycon engaged Starkitect Studio Inc., a company acting through Ofer Stark as consultant, to provide consultancy services during the six months’ period of 7 February—7 August 2019 and therefore Ofer Stark is not evaluated independent of the company. Furthermore, Arnold de Haan, Alexandre (Sandy) Koifman, David Lukes, Per-Anders Ovin and Ariella Zochovitzky are independent of significant shareholders. Chaim Katzman and Ofer Stark are not regarded as being independent of significant shareholders due to their  employ or  service  of Citycon’s main shareholder, Gazit-Globe Ltd. or its affiliated companies. Since Andrea Orlandi is in the employ of Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, which wholly owns CPP Investment Board European Holdings S.àr.l, a significant shareholder in Citycon, he is not regarded as being independent of significant shareholders.

Chaim Katzman is the Chairman of the Board of Directors with Ariella Zochovitzky serving as Deputy Chairman.
