Paris, July 19, 2021 - Ipsos announces the appointment of Nathalie Roos as Chief Executive Officer. The recruitment of Nathalie Roos is the culmination of a rigorous selection process carried out since mid-2019 by the Nomination and Remuneration Committee and the Board of Directors of Ipsos with a view to separating the functions of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Didier Truchot, the Company's founder, will be Chairman of the Board of Directors of Ipsos SA, while Nathalie Roos will be Chief Executive Officer.
The Board of Directors of Ipsos will convene a General Shareholders' Meeting on September 21, 2021 to approve the new compensation policy for the Chief Executive Officer1.

The Board of Directors chose Nathalie Roos because she has built a rich international career at the highest levels of corporate clients. She has demonstrated a great capacity to listen to all stakeholders and has achieved strong economic performance in all her responsibilities. Nathalie Roos and the Ipsos teams will enable the group to accelerate its transformation and assert its place as an irreplaceable source of credible and clear information on Society, markets and people."
