En 2017, Arthur Sadoun est devenu Président du Directoire en succédant à Maurice Lévy, 75 ans, qui est aujourd’hui Président du Conseil de Surveillance en remplacement d'Elisabeth Badinter, principale actionnaire.
Pour les fonctions de Président du Conseil, la Société propose à Maurice Lévy une rémunération fixe de 2,8 M€, ce qui est inhabituellement élevé pour un Président non exécutif et 9,5 fois plus élevé que la rémunération perçue par Elisabeth Badinter en 2016 en tant que Présidente du Conseil.
De manière générale, les rémunérations des mandataires sociaux dirigeants de Publicis sont globalement très importantes : Arthur Sadoun pourrait se voir attribuer une rémunération de 8 M€ pour 2018, notamment en raison d’une attribution d’actions exceptionnelle valant à elle seule 6 M€.
Proxinvest salue l'amélioration du taux d'indépendance du conseil suite au départ de deux administrateurs indépendants selon la société mais non libres de conflits d'intérêts selon Proxinvest, et à l'arrivée de Cherie Nursalim, candidate livre d'intérêts.
