Herman Van Rompuy strengthens the Board of Directors (EnergyVision/Brusol)
BRUSSELS, 23/06/2021 - As part of our continued growth, we have also strengthened our Board of Directors. We are pleased to announce the arrival of Herman Van Rompuy. The former Prime Minister and former President of the European Council (popularly called "European President") will become an external director. It is Van Rompuy's only mandate in the private sector. We are particularly proud that 'Haiku Herman' will now attend our board meetings. Was this haiku from 2017 prophetic?
Who once saw the sun
Never really gets used to the cold again
A son of the sun
The Board of Directors has a majority of external, independent directors who help ensure the quality of our company.
