If you run an association, cooperative, foundation or a mutual insurance company, in future you can choose to have a unitary board. This was already an option for private limited companies (bvs) and public limited companies (nvs).
A unitary board is a single board of directors, comprised of executive and non-executive directors. This is also called a one-tier board. There is no separate supervisory board. The supervisory directors are part of the board. A company has 1 board of which both management and supervisory directors are part.
There is a difference between executive and non-executive directors. Only a non-executive director can act as chairman.
