Group management

In addition to the President and CEO, Group management consists of the managers of the five business areas and the four Group staff managers. Group management holds monthly meetings led by the CEO. These meetings follow a set agenda and are documented in minutes. Group management conducts the ongoing financial and commercial administration and review of the Group’s activities. Group management also works continuously to identify synergies and opportunities in terms of acquisitions and structural adjustments, as well as adapting operations to optimise customer benefit and profitability.
