ILA elects a new Board of Directors

ILA elects a new Board of Directors at its second e-AGM, a milestone as it celebrates its 15th+1 Anniversary.

Following its Annual General Meeting held on Tuesday 1 June 2021, the Institut Luxembourgeois des Administrateurs (ILA) is pleased to announce the election of Julie Becker, the newly appointed CEO of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange, to its Board of Directors (the “Board”) in a landmark year celebrating its 15th +1 Anniversary.

Julie explained: “I feel humbled and honoured to be elected to ILA’s Board of directors. The « G » of ESG is of paramount importance and it is essential for Managers and Boards, who are driving business decisions, to understand the magnitude of the shift that is happening. If companies are to accelerate their transition and deliver, ambitious sustainability goals need to be defined in the boardroom. ILA’s vast network is an invaluable source of knowledge and guidance for directors, and through its work, ILA helps raise the bar for corporate governance.”  

Carine Feipel, current ILA Chair, Justin Griffiths and Virginie Lagrange have been re-elected to the Board.
Robert Scharfe, member of the ILA Board of Directors for the last nine years did not stand for re-election due to his recent retirement from the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. He will, however, continue actively collaborating with ILA as he has recently joined the ILA Education Working Committee.

Carine Feipel, Chair of the Board of Directors of the association, commented: “I am proud to be able to count on such a diverse Board. ILA is going through a digital transformation, and I am confident this Board is going to steer the association towards further growth and success. “

The new Board confirmed Carine Feipel as its Chair for her second and last mandate, elected Virginie Lagrange as Vice-Chair and validated the composition of the new Management Committee. Virginie Lagrange stated: “It is a pleasure and honour to have been elected Vice-Chair of the ILA. I look forward to helping the association manage its growth, advance its digital transformation and overcome future challenges.”

This year marks the 15th+1 Anniversary of ILA, a milestone in the association's history that will be celebrated on 16 June 2021 in a virtual event with the participation of the Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Mr. Xavier Bettel.
