Orpea shareholders approve the renewal of the board of directors

The shareholders of Orpea, meeting in general meeting, approved Thursday the appointments of five new directors, including that of the former boss of the SNCF, Guillaume Pepy, who will head the board of directors of the group of retirement homes , shaken since January by a scandal targeting its practices.

The shareholders of Orpea met in Paris for the first time since the publication of the shocking book „Les Fossoyeurs” which seriously tarnished the model, practices and image of a group present in 23 countries and which manages more than 350 establishments for dependent elderly people in France.

The shareholders approved by more than 99% the appointments to the board of directors of the new general manager of the group Laurent Guillot and of the former CEO of the SNCF Guillaume Pepy who will take over the chairmanship of the board.
