Corporate governance

Since 2016, Trigano has opted for a dual management and administration structure with a Management Board and a Supervisory Board.

This mode of governance allows a clear separation between the management of the Company, which is the responsibility of the Management Board, and the control of this management, which is ensured by the Supervisory Board. Trigano consequently has a responsive management team that respects the prerogatives of the Supervisory Board.
The composition of the Supervisory Board guarantees the independence of control and the balance of powers, as well as gender balance.
