The Board of Directors of Ferrovial, at the proposal of the Appointments and Remuneration Committee, has appointed Gonzalo Urquijo as an independent director.
He succeeds Santiago Bergareche, who has stepped down in order to contribute to a renewal of the Board, of which he has been a member for the last 20 years.
Urquijo is currently exective chairman of Abengoa and the Focus Abengoa foundation, as well as being director of Gestamp and Fertiberia.
This appointment follows the new chief executive office (CEO), Ignacio Madridejos taking charge of the company in October this year. In December, Amanda Fisher was also appointed as acting CEO of Amey – Ferrovial’s UK subsidiary.
