Publicis Changes Rules so Lévy Can Stay on Board

Age limit for directors raised from 70 to 75

Publicis Groupe chairman and CEO Maurice Lévy won’t be pushed into retirement just yet. On Tuesday, a vote at the Publicis Groupe’s annual general shareholders’ meeting in Paris approved a measure to raise the age limit for members of the company’s board of directors from 70 to 75. This move will allow Lévy, who celebrated his 69th birthday in February, to retain his position after his term on the board ends in December 2011.
