CriteriaCaixa, a company that manages the business assets of the Fundación Bancaria La Caixa, has renewed its board of directors after the departure of Alejandro García-Bragado, until now the company’s first vice-president, as he has not renewed his position.
CriteriaCaixa sources have explained that the non-renewal of García-Bragado is due to bank deconsolidation process and good governance recommendations of the European Central Bank (ECB), so that there are no people holding different positions in both companies.
In this way, García-Bragado ceases to be the first vice president of CriteriaCaixa, a company 100% owned by the Fundación Bancaria La Caixa, although remains as a director of CaixaBank.
The sources consulted have pointed out, in this regard, that last April Marcelino Armenter resigned from being a director of CaixaBank so that this position on the board does not interfere in the exercise of his responsibilities as CEO of CriteriaCaixa.
Thus, the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees of the Fundación Bancaria La Caixa, in its capacity as sole shareholder of CriteriaCaixa, has agreed today to reelection as members of the board of directors of Javier Godó, Víctor Grífols and Juan José López Burniol.
Javier Godó remains as the second vice president of the entity, while the first vice president that García-Bragado occupied is vacant.
The board of directors is also made up of Isidro Fainé, Marcelino Armenter, Enrique Alcántara-García, José Antonio Asiáin, Jean Louis Chaussade, Marcos Contreras, Isabel Estapé, Eugenio Gay, Josep Delfí Guàrdia, Francesc Homs, María Asunción Ortega and Montserrat Trapé.
For its part, the Executive commission It is now integrated by Isidro Fainé, Marcelino Armenter, José Antonio Asiáin, Marcos Contreras and Juan José López Burniol.
