Établissements Peugeot Frères' Board of Directors, in its meeting of 27 May 2021, decided to split the

roles of Chair of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer in line with best practice regarding

corporate governance.

Jean-Philippe Peugeot, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company since 1 July 1998, is

stepping down as Chief Executive Officer and becoming non-executive Chairman. He will continue to

contribute his experience in that role, particularly as regards corporate governance. He will also remain

a Board member at Peugeot Invest and Peugeot 1810.

Thierry Mabille de Poncheville, previously Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Établissements Peugeot

Frères and General Counsel of the Peugeot family Group, is taking the role of Chief Executive Officer.

Thierry Mabille de Poncheville joined the Peugeot family Group in 2005 as General Counsel.

Sophie Vernier-Reiffers has been appointed General Counsel and Sustainability Director of the Peugeot

family Group. She is replacing Thierry Mabille de Poncheville as General Counsel and taking on the

newly created role of Sustainability Director. This reflects the Peugeot family Group's desire for its

activities to be firmly rooted in a structured, ambitious approach to social and environmental

responsibility. Sophie Vernier-Reiffers has been with Peugeot Invest for 12 years, and was previously

Deputy General Counsel. Within the family Group, she initiated Peugeot Invest's ESG approach in 2016

and subsequently rolled it out across all entities in the Peugeot family Group.
