The directorships of Patrick Bernasconi, Jacques Chanut, AG Real Estate, MH Puccini, SMAvie BTP and Suravenir were renewed for a period of three years, and the General Meeting appointed Bruno Cavagné as a director for a period of three years. Their directorships will all expire at the close of the AGM called to approve the 2026 financial statements.

The Board of Directors also reappointed Christel Zordan as Chief Executive Officer for a further three years. This renewable appointment takes effect on 15 May 2024 and will expire at the close of the Ordinary General Meeting called in 2027 to approve the financial statements for the year ending 31 December 2026.

Appointment of Bruno Cavagné as Chairman of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors has appointed Bruno Cavagné as Chairman of the Board of Directors. He succeeds Patrick Bernasconi, who took up his post in February 2022, and whose term of office expired at the close of the Annual General Meeting. Chairman of SMAvie BTP since October 2023, Bruno Cavagné has headed Giesper since 1995, a Toulouse-based family-owned group with 300 employees, specialising in public works, construction, property development and hotel management. He chaired the Tenders Committee of the Haute-Garonne Chamber of Commerce and Industry from 1997 to 2009, and was elected Chairman of the Midi-Pyrénées Regional Federation of Public Works in 2008. A director of Canalisateurs de France and then of the National Federation of Public Works (FNTP) and the Syndicat de France, he served as Vice-Chairman in 2012 and then Chairman of the FNTP from 2013 to 2023. He is also Vice-Chairman of the COI (Infrastructure Orientation Council) and an advisor on economic life and social dialogue to the French Economic, Social and Environmental Council (CESE).

“I would like to thank the directors for the confidence they have shown in me through this appointment, and Patrick Bernasconi for his commitment during his time as Chairman. We look forward to continuing to support Société de la Tour Eiffel, which is already fully committed to implementing the ambitious and essential roadmap for the sustainable transformation of its portfolio. In a turbulent environment, this strategy will address the challenges of the real estate sector and ultimately lead the company towards a return to sustainable growth for the benefit of all its tenants and shareholders,” said Bruno Cavagné.
