OUR BOARDS

As a Dutch company, Cimpress has a two-tier board structure: our supervisory board and our management board. Members of both boards are expected to act properly in the interest of the company and its stakeholders: customers, team members, society and investors. In doing so, each board should act in accordance with the requirements of reasonableness and fairness (redelijkheid en billijkheid) towards all involved in the company.

The Supervisory Board’s principal responsibility is to oversee the management of the company and its subsidiaries and, in so doing, serve the best interests of the Company and its business.

Learn more about our Supervisory Board members, the rules for the Supervisory Board, and its committee membership and structure.

The principal responsibility of the Management Board is to manage Cimpress, which means, among other things, that it is responsible for implementing the company’s aims and strategy, managing the associated risk profile, operating the business on a day-to-day basis and addressing corporate social responsibility issues.
