The board of directors has affirmatively determined that each of our directors, other than Mr. Stanage, meets the director independence requirements of the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange.

In January 2014, director W. Kim Foster was selected to act as the lead director for meetings of the non-management directors in executive sessions.

Shareholders and other interested parties may contact the non-management members of the board or the presiding director by sending their concerns to: Board of Directors, c/o Corporate Secretary, Hexcel Corporation, Two Stamford Plaza, 281 Tresser Boulevard, Stamford, CT 06901; facsimile number (203) 358-3972; e-mail address boardofdirectors@hexcel.com. The corporate secretary will review all communications and forward them to the presiding director. The corporate secretary may, however, filter out communications that do not relate to our business activities, operations or our public disclosures, but will maintain a record of these communications and make them available to the presiding director. Any communications received by the presiding director regarding concerns relating to accounting, internal accounting controls or auditing matters will be immediately brought to the attention of the audit committee and will be handled in accordance with the procedures established by the audit committee to address these matters.

The board of directors has established four standing committees: audit committee; compensation committee; nominating and corporate governance committee; and finance committee. You may view a copy of the charters of the committees of the board by clicking the links below on this page. You may also obtain a copy by contacting our investor relations manager at Hexcel Corporation, Two Stamford Plaza, 281 Tresser Boulevard, Stamford, CT 06901, or at (203) 352-6826.

In February 2015, the board of directors affirmatively determined that each member of the audit, compensation and nominating and corporate governance committees meets the director independence requirements of the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange. Also, each member of the audit committee meets the financial literacy requirements of the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange and satisfies the additional independence requirements for audit committee members required by the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Furthermore, the board of directors has determined that director Jeffrey C. Campbell is an audit committee financial expert under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
