Shareholder Advisory Committee



The Shareholder Advisory Committee serves as both a consultative body and a forum for discussion, to improve the way we communicate with our retail shareholders.

The aim is to enhance our understanding of individual shareholders' expectations about the information they receive and their relationship with the company in order to make the communication process as transparent as possible and align it more closely with their specific needs.

The Committee meets twice a year and is chaired by the Senior Vice President, Financial Communications and Investor Relations.

Its nine members are volunteers chosen for their motivation and for how well they reflect the diversity of AccorHotels' retail shareholder base.
