Executive Committee (EC)5 min.
dormakaba delegates entrepreneurial responsibility for operational business to segment level. The corresponding management organization is based on decentralized responsibility where appropriate and therefore rapid decision-making structures situated close to local markets. This helps to keep activities focused on the customer. Group functions like Accounting, Communications, Controlling, Human Resources, IT, Legal, Tax and Treasury define and monitor Group-wide standards and are responsible for functional, Group-wide projects. The CFO is responsible for the Group’s financial affairs as well as other Group functions such as IT and Investor Relations. The COOs are responsible for the business activities of their respective segments, including product development, production, sales, and services. Group Innovation Management focuses on digitization as well as Intellectual Property Management and is strategically managed at EC level by the CTO (Chief Technology Officer).
