Indra’s Board of Directors has announced the departure of Ignacio Mataix, CEO of the company, who will leave as soon as the group finds his successor. The decision has been “made unanimously and by mutual agreement” with the current chief executive, according to the technology company through a relevant fact distributed through the CNMV.
The same sources specify that the replacement in the group is linked to the definition of the next strategic plan that Indra plans to define for the coming years.
The same statement indicates that Mataix “will continue to perform his current functions to facilitate the succession process and continuity in management, until the appointment of the new CEO.” For these jobs, Indra has announced that it will use the services of an independent consultant specializing in the search and selection of senior managers.
Indra’s board has also determined that, once the new CEO takes office, “Mataix will continue to provide his services to the company as a strategic advisor to the Board of Directors for a period of two years.” In the same way, the Board of Directors has unanimously valued Mataix very positively and has recorded its gratitude and congratulations “for his excellent contribution to the Transport and Defense business and for his great performance as CEO at the head of the Company , and in a very special way the results obtained in the year 2022”.
As announced by elEconomista, the current non-executive chairman of Indra, Marc Murtra, will continue to perform the role of non-executive chairman of Indra, since the current division of powers will add value to the group by taking advantage of Murtra’s qualities in the field of institutional relations in an increasingly globalized environment.
