As censor, Mr. Grynberg will attend BoD meetings in a consultative capacity, and the board will benefit immediately from his experience and expertise. The Internal Regulations of the Board will be applicable to him in all its provisions.

Marc Grynberg was appointed chief executive officer of Umicore in November 2008, after serving as head of the Group’s Automotive Catalysts business unit from 2006 to 2008.

He joined Umicore in 1996 as group controller, and previously served as the company’s chief financial officer from 2000 until 2006.
