    The CEO leads the Executive Committee in its overall management of the Company to achieve its performance goals and objectives.

    More specifically, the role of the Executive Committee is to implement the Financial & Strategic directions provided by the Board of Directors. Formally gathering once a month, this Committee engages in decision-making, supporting the CEO in the following areas:

    • Strategic matters within the framework set by the Board;
    • Industrial footprint & geographical expansion;
    • Capital allocations;
    • Organisational & staffing needs;
    • Product portfolio evolution through new developments & rationalisation;
    • Company policies & critical processes.

    It systematically reviews company financial & operational performance, discusses & validates staffing for key positions, seeks insights into various ongoing legal company matters and fosters the implementation of legal best practices.

    The Executive Committee endorses the product, marketing & commercial plans and reviews the budget orientations prior to validation by the Company Board of Directors.

    The internal audit & internal control management provides regular updates to the Executive Committee, assessing progress towards reaching the objectives set forth by the Audit Committee. The Executive Committee, on a regular basis, reviews the performance of Platform & Operational functions during specific sessions whereby the respective leaders report out on their product development roadmaps & operational improvement initiatives.

  • Effective internal control

    A robust and broad internal control system encompasses all Group functions and activities. By enabling quicker, more reliable and more competitive operations, a sound internal control system built on a self-assessed questionnaire provides reasonable assurance that Alstom processes are compliant with laws and regulations at all times. Internal control questionnaire ensures that information and data including financial information are reliable and operations are completed in an optimal manner. Around 1,500 Alstom personnel, including operational and unit management, are involved in the internal control self-assessment exercise.
