Please see the introduction of the Board of Directors

All Directors are independent of the company. Furthermore, Arnold de Haan, Bernd Knobloch, Kirsi Komi, 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 Bernd Knobloch serving as Deputy Chairman.
