Andrea Sironi stated:
“It is an honour for me to be elected as candidate Chairman of Assicurazioni Generali, a group with a great history that has always played a role of absolute importance in the economic and financial system of Italy and Europe. I would like to express my personal gratitude, and that of the entire Group, to Gabriele Galateri di Genola, for the balance, professionalism and commitment with which he has guided Generali over the past eleven years. My commitment as Chairman, once appointed by the Board, will be to do everything possible to best represent all of Generali’s stakeholders – my only reference point will be the best for the company and its sustainable future.
With today’s meeting, a very delicate phase comes to an end. Aware that the result of the meeting reflected – in compliance with the rules governing this procedure – the will of the majority of shareholders, I hope that everyone can now commit themselves towards this common goal, which is the interests of Assicurazioni Generali.”
Philippe Donnet stated:
“The Generali management welcomes the outcome of the Shareholders’ Meeting, which has confirmed confidence in our “Lifetime Partner 24: Driving Growth” plan. Together with Generali’s employees we have consolidated our leadership in Europe and become Lifetime Partner to a growing base of customers. We have also boosted innovation and digitisation, increased profits and fully integrated sustainability into our business. Our strategic plan offers a clear vision for the Group in 2024 and it will create value for all stakeholders. I look forward to working with the new Board of Directors bringing additional skills and expertise to the Group to successfully deliver this plan.”
