Group Executive Board
Group Executive Board’s duties and working methods
The Group Executive Board led by the Group CEO is responsible for the Group’s operations in practice. The Group Executive Board convenes regularly to analyse and evaluate the financial and business performance as well as the key development initiatives of both segments. The management team has no official statutory position but, in practice, it has a significant role in the organisation of the Company management.
Based on the CEO’s proposal, the Board of Directors confirms the composition and new nominations to the Group Executive Board.
The Managing Directors of subsidiaries are in charge of the business operations in each subsidiary. Significant decisions, such as significant investments, are subject to the Group CEO’s approval. Each subsidiary has its own financial administration, while the Group’s Chief Financial Officer has responsibility of group-wide financial administration.
The segments’ financial reports and the situation of the businesses’ key development projects are on the agenda of the Group Executive Board which convenes on a quarterly basis.
