Board of Control

Based on the proposal of the Board of Directors, the Assembly of Delegates elects an independent auditing company as the external Board of Control. The Board of Control is appointed for a term of office of two years, and may be reappointed.

PricewaterhouseCoopers AG has been confirmed as both FMC Board of Control and group auditor until 30 June 2016. The company has been auditing the annual financial statements of the FMC and the Migros Group accounts since 1 July 2000 (previously Swiss Trust Company – Coopers Lybrand AG). The Chief Auditor, Rodolfo Gerber, certified public accountant, took up his post in the 2013 financial year.

Certain audits of the Migros Group accounts are carried out by Mitreva Treuhand und Revision AG, working in close cooperation with PricewaterhouseCoopers AG.
