"órgano" would exlude "management" IMO so maybe "board" .... other colleagues may be able to clarify here ....

adminsitrative body


Explanation:
Although board of directors is definitely a possibility, I believe the writer/drafter may have intended to use a more generic terms than "consejo de administración"

established management body


Explanation:
I would clarify by saying that this "órgano colegiado de administración" (established management body) in Mexico would normally consist of either a Board of Directors or a "Sole Manager" (Administrador único), the latter is also very common, and therefore this generic term is used.

However, they also often specify either/or by using both terms, a Board or Sole Manager.
