- Jonathan Levy from United States of America,

Sergi Amacellas Abellana is the current president of the board.
The statutes of the foundation foresee the role of managing directors and administration delegates, depending whether they are members of the board or not. The current directors/delegates are:
- Cédric Krier from Belgium as Delegated Administrator,
- Nicolas Évrard from Belgium as Delegated Administrator.
