The Compensation Committee is responsible for, among other things, assisting the Board of Directors in: (i) determining executive compensation consistent with the Company’s remuneration policy, (ii) reviewing and recommending for approval the compensation of executive Directors, (iii) administering equity incentive plans and deferred compensation benefit plans, and (iv) discussing with management the Company’s policies and practices related to compensation and issuing recommendations thereon.
The Compensation Committee currently consists of Mr. Elkann (Chairman), Ms. Grieco and Messrs. Houle and Kalantzis. The Compensation Committee is elected by the Board of Directors and is comprised of at least three directors. No more than one member may be non-independent under the Dutch Corporate Governance Code. The members of the Compensation Committee are appointed for terms of up to two years.
Unless decided otherwise by the Compensation Committee, the Chief Human Resources Officer for the Company attends its meetings.
During 2014 the Compensation Committee met three times and attendance of Directors at those meetings was 100%.
