The departure of the company’s CEO, Ignacio Mataix, and the pressure exerted on the Appointments Committee to close the appointment of his replacement with some haste, which prevented there being “sufficient time to guarantee the success of the decision”. These are the two reasons that the independent director Axel Arendt alleges for his immediate resignation from Indra’s highest decision-making body. He reflects them in a letter sent to the president, Marc Murtra, which the group has sent to the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV).
Arendt says that during the seven months that have elapsed since her appointment, events have occurred that make her doubt her “continuing position and value” for the company. The first is the dismissal of Mataix. He acknowledges in the letter that he had a relationship prior to his landing with the executive, to whom he gave “excellent professional credibility.” He applauds the exit agreed by both parties, but admits that he does not understand the reasons given “the very good results” achieved by the company and “the high esteem it has in the markets and the defense industry.”
