Fives' governance has adapted to the growth of the Group without compromising its essential structure of individual entities - promoting team responsibility and motivation. Operating as think tanks, consultative bodies and management information channels, a series of cross-functional committees support the work of the Executive Committee and its contribution to Executive Board decision-making.

The Steering Committee

The Executive Board launches a series of regional Steering Committees whose prime purpose is to act as a creative melting pot for the Group. In each major region, their membership includes Group company CEOs and functional department leaders from  headquarter and/or the specified region. Fostering regional cross-disciplinary work, they ensure that the Group’s management teams fully grasp the operational needs. Introduced in 2012 in France, North America and China, similar committees will be created in the long-run, in other countries.

The Coordination Committee

The Executive Board has launched the Coordination Committee with the intention of boosting cross-functional interaction. This new body will specifically help to:

  • provide overall development support and assistance to Group companies,
  • act as a channel for informal communications,
  • ensure consistency between the policies and the recommended measures.
