RESPONSIBILITIES OF OUR Group Executive Committee

The Joint Presidents and CEOs are jointly and severally liable and accountable and there is joint oversight in all decision-making. However, to ensure that the business is managed effectively, our leadership model uses dual reporting lines, allocating responsibilities into portfolios which comprise a balance across business, functions and regions.
