ESTEVE ANNOUNCES THE APPOINTMENT OF ITS FOURTH INDEPENDENT DIRECTOR, JACQUES TAPIERO

A few months ago, ESTEVE began an important reorganization of its governing bodies with the appointment of three independent members to the Board of Directors, the departure of a few proprietary directors, and the restructure of all its commissions. As anticipated, the Company today confirmed the appointment of a fourth independent director with a proven track record of success.

Jacques Tapiero has developed most of his professional career at the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly. For more than 30 years at this Indianapolis-based American multinational corporation, Jacques Tapiero has held different responsible positions in several countries. Before leaving the company he was Senior Vice President, a member of the Executive Committee, and President of Emerging Markets. In this latter position his primary focus included the development of Lilly in the markets with highest growth potential: China, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, and Turkey. Mr. Tapiero was responsible for the management of a turnover of more than 2.5 billion dollars in more than 70 countries.

Presently, Jacques Tapiero is a member of the Board of Directors at McCormick & Company, a global leader in flavor. He is also a senior consultant at McKinsey & Company, an advisor at the GLG Institute, and a member of the executive directorate at the prestigious Thunderbird School of Global Management.

Mr. Tapiero was born in Morocco and he is a Swiss and a North American citizen. He graduated with a degree in Business Administration and Management at the École Supérieure de Commerce of Clermont Ferrand (France). In 1982 he received his MBA from the American Graduate School of International Management, Glendale, Arizona (USA).
ESTEVE's Board of Directors is presided over by Joan Esteve and the Group's executive management structure is led by its CEO Albert Esteve.
