Our management bodies
In line with its strategic decision to enhance customer-centricity, operational decision-making is decentralized. Global Business Units (GBUs) are run on a worldwide basis with broad autonomy to manage and develop their businesses. Their projects and initiatives are then challenged by the Executive Committee and reviewed by the Board.
Two bodies – the Leadership Council and the Management Committee – provide forums for the heads of GBUs, Functions and Zones to share and develop their strategic insights and provide key operational input for the Executive Committee regarding Group-wide initiatives and transformation projects.
Created in 2016, the Management Committee comprises seven Heads of GBUs and Functions in addition to the Executive Committee members, and meets on a quarterly basis. It contributes to defining the Group’s strategy and portfolio management, leading sustainability policies and monitoring progress towards extra-financial objectives, as well as to resources allocation.
The Leadership Team consists of GBU Presidents, General Managers of Functions, and Zone Presidents.
