Corporate Governance

Executive Committee

The Chief Executive Officer is responsible for the management of the Corporation. Under his leadership, the Executive Committee addresses all issues of relevance to the Corporation, takes decisions within its remit, and submits proposals to the Board of Directors. The Heads of the three Divisions and two Corporate Staff Units are responsible for drafting and achieving their business objectives and for managing their units autonomously. No management responsibility is delegated to third parties at the Executive Committee level (management contracts).
