Election of Directors
On July 14, 2017, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of The AES Corporation (the “Company”) elected Alain Monié to the Board, effective immediately, and appointed him to the Compensation Committee, Nominating, Governance and Corporate Responsibility Committee, and Innovation and Technology Committee of the Board.

Mr. Monié has served as the chief executive officer of Ingram Micro Inc. (“Ingram Micro”), a leader in delivering the full spectrum of global technology and supply chain solutions to businesses around the world, since January 2012.

Mr. Monié joined Ingram Micro in 2003 and was appointed president of the Asia Pacific region in 2004. From 2007 to 2010, he served as president and chief operating officer of Ingram Micro. Following one year as chief executive officer of Singapore-based Asia Pacific Resources International Limited, he returned to Ingram Micro as chief operating officer in late 2011 and became chief executive officer in January 2012. Prior to joining Ingram Micro, Mr. Monié held senior international leadership positions with AlliedSignal Inc. (“AlliedSignal”) and, subsequently, Honeywell International (“Honeywell”) after the two companies merged. Mr. Monié played a key role in AlliedSignal’s 1999 merger with Honeywell and, from 2000 to 2002, he served as Honeywell’s president of Latin America and head of the Industrial and Building Automation group for that region. Before joining AlliedSignal, Mr. Monié held general management positions with French aerospace company Sogitec Inc. and, prior to that, he was a controller with Renault. He started his career as an engineer in Mexico while in military service.

Mr. Monié earned a master’s degree in business administration from the Institut Supérieur des Affaires in Jouy-en-Josas, France (now part of Groupe HEC). He graduated with honors in automation engineering studies at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers (ENSAM), Bordeaux and Paris. He currently serves on the board of directors of Ingram Micro (November 2011 – present) and Expeditors (May 2017 – present), and served in the past on the boards of, Inc. (2008 – 2016) and Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (2005 – 2009).

Mr. Monié will participate in the non-employee director compensation arrangements described in the Company’s 2017 proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 8, 2017. Also, consistent with initial grants previously offered to non-employee directors of the Company, Mr. Monié will receive an initial equity grant consisting of deferred stock units and/or stock options valued at $40,000.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
