ECONOCOM : Econocom Group expands its Board of Directors


The expansion of Econocom Group and its development projects have led it to appoint new members to its Board of Directors.

Jean Mounet has agreed to join the Econocom Group Board of Directors as an independent board member.

He has spent most of his career in the IT sector, initially with manufacturers IBM and Bull, and subsequently with Sopra Group, which he joined in 1988 and of which he was appointed Vice-President in 2005.

Jean Mounet also chaired the Syntec Numérique from 2003 to 2010 and is currently President of the "Observatoire du Numérique" ("Digital Observatory") working group as part of a strategic, high-priority project run by the French Ministry of Industry.

The group's Board of Directors has also invited the shareholders to appoint Véronique di Benedetto and Chantal De Vrieze as executive members. They are in charge of France and Benelux respectively, the Econocom group's two most important geographical areas.

In addition to her role within the Syntec Numérique, Véronique di Benedetto is extremely active in promoting Econocom Group's social and civic-minded actions through various associations such as Passerelles Numériques, of which she is a trustee and which offers IT training to disadvantaged young people in South-East Asia.

Chantal De Vrieze is a member of board of the Belgian Federation of Businesses, president of Agoria ICT and a member of the Agoria Board of Directors, as well as a member of the Belgian Leasing Association's Executive Board.

These appointments will be submitted for shareholder approval at the General Meeting on

5 December, 2011.
