Operational decisions and respect for values for profitable growth

The Management Board formulates proposals for the Board of Directors with regard to strategy, development, monitoring and financing of Group activities. The objective is to ensure its profitable growth. The Management Board makes operational decisions for the Group in accordance with the decisions of the Board of Directors and defines the options that John Cockerill representatives will support in the administrative bodies of the subsidiary companies.

The Management Board ensures that convergences between the different operating sectors are optimised at the financial, human, technical and commercial levels. It embodies the values and the spirit of John Cockerill and ensures that the Group identity is respected. It also represents the Group with its institutional communities.

The composition of the Management Board varies according to the activities of the Group, so as to always guarantee balanced representation of the operational and functional management. In its basic configuration, the Management Board is composed of the Chief Executive Officer, operational managers and Corporate function managers.
