NOTICE OF NOMINATION PERIOD FOR CANDIDATES SEEKING ELECTION TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The four (4) directors that are up for election confirmed their intention of running again for Genium360’s 2019-2021 Board mandate. Three (3) out of the four (4) directors will be completing their third and last two-year (2) mandate, the fourth director will be undertaking a 2nd mandate.

After a thorough analysis of the existing profiles and expertise, and taking into account the arrival of 3 new directors within the team, the Board has come to the conclusion that the continuing involvement of these 4 directors within Genium360 for another 2 years would be beneficial to the organization. Indeed, governance best practices suggest that the Board should both renew itself as well as maintain stability in order to optimize work synergy within the Board. Therefore, with continuation in mind, it is advisable that the mandates of the 4 directors up for re-election be renewed for another term.

An analysis of the Board’s collective skill set has been carried out and indicates the profiles and strengths of the existing team, namely:

- Entrepreneurial profile, in particular in industry 4.0

> Recognized leadership in their field of expertise:
> Developing a customer base in a digital environment
> In-depth expertise in the digital field (big data, artificial intelligence)
> Marketing within a digital context
> Strategic planning

- Knowledge of how a modern and ethical board operates

If you feel that you are in a position to offer distinctive and complimentary expertise to the existing Board members, we invite you to consider submitting your candidacy.
