Commitment to responsible Governance

Coface is organised around several committees, and the Group Management Board is the first of these.

The Group Management Board is complemented by an Executive Committee composed of the Group Management Board, the regional directors, and key internal stakeholders in the development of the company.

Eventually, the Headquarters Leaders Committee brings together the CEO and the main managers of the various head office functions.

Group Management Board

The Group Management Board is Coface's main decision-making body. It meets regularly and is notably responsible for Coface Group strategic and organisational matters.

Group Executive Commitee

The Group Executive Committee consists of members of the Group Management Board, seven regional directors (Latin America, North America, Asia Pacific, Central Europe, Western Europe, Northern Europe, Mediterranean & Africa) and key internal stakeholders in the development of the company. This committee focuses on the operational issues and addresses specific regional situations. It contributes to the development of the strategy and the study of key operational issues or strategic initiatives.
