FEMSA`s Board of Directors has 19 members of 6 of whom are independent.

Under Mexican legislation the Directors are appointed by the stockholders in the Ordinary Stockholders Meeting. Each director is assigned an Alternate Director authorized to serve in the Board if the Director cannot attend the meetings or participate in the activities of the Board.

The Directors and their Alternates hold office for one year and may be reelected upon extinction of their term. The Company’s Bylaws provide that the stockholders of FEMSA’s Series D shares may elect five Directors.

 José Antonio Fernández has been the Chairman of the Board of Directors since 2001.
