Definition : Director

Natural person elected or appointed to form the board of directors. As a mandatary, this person manages, alone (when the board of directors is composed of a single director) or in collaboration with the other members of the board of directors, the affairs of the syndicate of co-owners.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ! It is the board of directors, as a group, that makes decisions and not the directors individually. The only exception to this principle is acts of a conservatory nature or those which require promptness under reserve, in the latter case, they are authorized by the court.
