The Extraordinary General Meeting on 11 June 2020 set  the number of Board members at ten(10). Members of the Board of Directors  are:

Ariella Zochovitzky Deputy Chairman Israel 1957
Judah Angster Member United States 1982

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, Judah Angster, Arnold de Haan, Alexandre (Sandy) Koifman, David Lukes, Per-Anders Ovin and Ariella Zochovitzky are independent of significant shareholders. Chaim Katzman, Zvi Gordon 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.
