Management and company structure
Electrolux aims at implementing strict norms and efficient processes to ensure that all operations create long-term value for shareholders and other stakeholders. This involves the maintenance of an efficient organizational structure, systems for internal control and risk management and transparent internal and external reporting.
The Group has a decentralized corporate structure in which the overall management of operational activities is largely performed by the business sector boards.
Electrolux operations are organized into six business sectors. Within Major Appliances, the business sectors are geographically defined, while the sectors Professional Products and Small Appliances are global. There are seven group staff units that support all business sectors: Finance, Legal Affairs, Human Resources and Organizational Development, Marketing and Branding, Technology and Product Development, Design and Communications.
There are a number of internal bodies which are forums that are preparatory and decision-making in their respective areas. Each body includes representatives from concerned functions and in most cases the President and CEO.
In order to fully take advantage of the Group’s global presence and economies of scale, a global organization within Major Appliances was established in 2009 with the responsibility for product development, purchasing and manufacturing.
Since October 2011, the Global Major Appliances Leadership Team (MALT) includes the President, the CFO, the four Major Appliances business sector heads, the Chief Marketing Officer, the Chief Design Officer, the Chief Technology Officer, the heads of the Product Boards, Purchasing and Manufacturing, the General Counsel and the Head of Human Resources and Organizational Development. The MALT makes decisions and provides clarity on issues and opportunities relevant to the four major appliances businesses. Some decisions regarding cross-sector products and investments are prepared by Global Product Boards. The MALT has the authority to decide when matters amount up to SEK 100m.
