Board of Directors

Votorantim's entrepreneurial approach marked by integrity, collaboration, and courage is the result of its solid corporate governance model that permeates the relations between shareholder family, Votorantim S.A.'s Board of Directors, and its portfolio.

Corporate governance practices are constantly improving. Although not all portfolio companies are listed, since 2014 each company has also adopted its own robust governance model that includes its own Board of Directors, advisory committees and Executive Boards, which are responsible for deliberating on strategies, management and investments.

Votorantim executives are members of the Boards of Directors and Committees of portfolio companies, that focus on defining strategies and guidelines and identifying opportunities for new investments. This strategy, permeated by financial discipline, adequate debt management, and operational efficiency, contributes to a consistent performance that maintains the long-term vision without taking the focus off the challenges that will arise over the years.
