The Board of Directors

Hyosung Heavy Industries secures the Board of Directors’ transparent and independent decision-making authority and operates a governance system which enables efficient business management based upon appropriate checks and balances. As the highest decision-making body of the company, the Board of Directors(BOD) reviews and decides on matters required by law or corporate articles of association as well as matters delegated by the general meeting of shareholders. The BOD is also responsible for the review and decision of the foundational principles of business management and its operation aiming to improve interests of all stakeholders including shareholders.

The BOD consists of 5 directors including 2 standing directors and 3 outside directors. At the BOD held on March 21, 2020, we elected the Representative Director. Limitations on gender, religion and academic background is banned for the BOD appointment, and candidates are appointed as BOD through a fair process at the general meeting of shareholders. Candidates for standing director are nominated at the BOD and the outside directors are nominated through the Outside Director Candidate Nominating Committee.
